REHOBOTH, 13 NOV (NAMPA) - Three men arrested in April this year after being found in possession of mandrax and cannabis appeared in the Rehoboth Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, where their case was postponed to 18 December 2018.
Cleamens Witbeen, Edison Uirab and Antony Uirab made their fourth appearance in front of Magistrate Desire Kamboua when the matter was postponed for plea and trial.
The Namibian Police Force in Rehoboth confiscated 15 full mandrax tablets, four half mandrax tablets, seven quarter mandrax tablets and 31 small parcels of cannabis from the three suspects in Rehoboth’s Block E on 20 April 2018.
They also had N.dollars 795 in cash in their possession.
Bail was denied to the three accused on their first appearance. They were however granted bail on 25 April after their private lawyer, Winnie Christiaans succeeded in convincing the State to grant bail to his clients.
Public Prosecutor Leonard Mateus appeared for the State.
