Courts

A murder case that has been lugging in court since 2010 was heard by the Katutura Magistrate Court last week in which a 50-year-old murder suspect was ordered to return to court next year for the continuation of his case.
Harry Johan Smith (an Otjimuise resident) was arrested on 30 October 2010 for the murder of Rody Ivan Smith. *It is not clear whether or not the two were related but the case was not laid under the Domestic Act*.
Ivan died from stab wounds that Johan had made on him with a knife in Otjimuise on the day of his arrest.
When Johan appeared in court last year, he pleaded not guilty to the charges of murder. He is currently out on a N$4000 bail and is only expected to return to court again on 18th February next year.
