Ismael Uri-khob, 35, a Gemengde resident appeared in the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court last week for a theft case dating back to 2013. Uri-khob appeared before Magistrate Hileni Kavara and Prosecutor Idda Itembu for theft under false pretences.
According to court documents, Uri-khob was arrested due to a bad deal involving a broken jukebox. On 15 August 2013, Uri-khob allegedly unlawfully and with the intent to defraud took from a certain Fredrick Njadira an amount of N$7 500 which Njadira had paid for a jukebox, which was defective.
Uri-khob then promised to refund Njadira for the broken jukebox, but did not. Instead, he kept both the money and the jukebox.
When Uri-khob appeared in court last week, his case was postponed to 19 August next year for trial because complainant Njadira was not available due to his studies in South Africa.
