“The arrest was executed by members of the Namibian police upon reasonable suspicion that the suspect in question had committed some immigration-related offences in Namibia.
“The suspect was, in accordance with the law, subsequently convicted by a criminal court in Namibia and paid a fine.”
The Namibian presidency said after the suspect paid the fine, he left Namibia in November to return to his home country, SA.
“It follows from the above-stated facts that except for those who [motivated by bad faith and ulterior motives] would be quick to unnecessarily read something more into the statement of Mr Fraser, clearly the statement does not suggest criminality.
“It also does not suggest that President Geingob may have in any way participated in and/or abetted foreigners in kidnapping and torturing any person, as maliciously and recklessly suggested by certain individuals in Namibia and SA.”
