Foreign national contravenes Immigration Act

A South African national was found guilty of contravening the Immigration Act last week when he remained in Namibia after his permit had expired in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court.

Danyal Salmon was charged with one count of contravening section 29 (1), read with sections 1 and 8 of the Immigration Act 7 of 1993. He had stayed in Namibia illegally after his visitor’s permit expired earlier this year. He was arrested at the Hosea Kutako International Airport on 18 September this year, but it remains unclear as to whether he was trying to fly out of the country or not.

He entered Namibia on 25 May this year, and was supposed to leave the country on 28 May. But he didn’t, and thus had been illegally in Namibia for 82 days. Salmon pleaded guilty to the charge, and was given the option of either paying a fine of N$3 000, or serving a threemonths’ prison sentence. He opted for the former.
