WINDHOEK, 19 AUG (NAMPA) - Investigators attached to the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is asking for assistance in tracing Chinese national Gu Jainin Kelvin, who has been on the run since June this year.
The ACC's Chief Investigator Nelius Becker said in a media statement availed to Nampa here on Wednesday that the Chinese national failed to show up before the Walvis Bay Magistrate's Court in the Erongo Region on 24 June this year.
Both members of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) and the ACC's investigators have since been unable to trace him.
Gu, alongside another Chinese national and an employee of the Roads Authority (RA), was scheduled to make another appearance before the Walvis Bay Magistrate's Court in June but failed to show up.
A warrant for his immediate arrest was issued in court that day.
The three accused each face charges of corruption that stem from the alleged unlawful release of a truck belonging to the company where Gu was employed after the vehicle was impounded at the Walvis Bay weighbridge in 2012.
Any person with information regarding Gu's whereabouts can contact the ACC or the nearest police station.
