An extortion case involving three individuals was brought forth to the ACC court this week by Prosecutor Shatilwe Alexander.
Hafeni Nghishakemwa (29), Hileni Nambungu (41) and Martha Ndameshime (49) all pleaded not guilty of trying to extort Constable Gerhard Mumbala.
Court documents allege that suspects who were detained at the time, offered the constable N$990 and demanded they be released, after which they demanded the same amount from the constable.
It remains unclear whether or not the constable complied with their two earlier requests before they asked him to give them the same amount of money back.
The incident took place at the on 5 December 2013 near the Katutura police station. Each of them was charged with one count of extortion.
Nghishakemwa and Nambungu were released on bail of N$1000 while Ndameshime received a warning. The case was postponed to 19 October 2015.
