Richard Plaatjies (32), a resident of Erf TE 629 Goreagab dam, Katutura is facing charges of perjury after making contradicting statements to two police officers on the same case during separate incidents.
Plaatjies allegedly made a declaration under oath before a police officer on 12 April 2015 claiming that his television set got broken after intruders had broken into his house.
He seems to have changed his tune the next day when he allegedly told another officer, under oath, that the television set got broken after his son accidently climbed on it.
Plaatjies is expected back in court on the 20th of May 2016.
