The continuation of the trial of two American nationals charged with the murder of Windhoek resident André Heckmair in January 2011 was on Monday put on hold until Tuesday because key murder accused Marcus Kevin Tomas is suspected to have COVID-19. The Namibia press agency reports that Tomas was seen by a local private medical practitioner on 03 September 2020 as he is said to have displayed COVID-19 symptoms. He has now been placed in self-isolation at the trial-awaiting section of the Windhoek Central Correctional Facility, whose senior medical officers were also ordered by the court to confirm his actual health condition.
