THE State last week withdrew criminal charges against Namibia's musician Martin Morocky, aka 'The Dogg', in the Swakopmund Magistrate's Court, on the condition that he pay a N$4 000 admission-of-guilt fine on a charge of forging a car licence disk.

Morocky paid the fine.

If he had not, the criminal charge of forgery would have continued against him. The Namibian tried to obtain comment from 'The Dogg', but all he said was: "No comment".

Morocky apparently bought a second-hand Volkswagen Combi from a private seller about a year ago.

In December, the driver of the vehicle was pulled off the road because the vehicle was not roadworthy. Morocky was a passenger in the car. A quick check revealed that the licence disc had been forged.

'The Dogg' was arrested and made his first appearance just before the New Year where he was released on N$1 000 bail. The vehicle was impounded, but according to Police sources, it has been returned to him.
