THE woman who refused to be evicted from her home and was arrested twice last year with her three brothers has been released on bail of N$400.
According to Stella Hansen (37) she was released on the same day but her brother Desney Hansen was released the following day after a court hearing and they were granted bail of N$ 400 each.
Deputy Commissioner Edwin Kanguatjivi confirmed their release and added that at this point in time there is not much the police can say.
"It is now in the hands of the court. The evictees will have to wait for their pre-trial and the court would determine their fate on that day," he said.
The Namibian reported last year about the four family members who refused to vacate a house that they claim belongs to them, despite the Windhoek Municipality having auctioned it in 2007 because of accumulated debt.
Hansen and her three other brothers claim that their house was sold irregularly by the municipality. They say they were not informed of the sale and have since refused to obey an eviction order.
They have to appear in court again on March 26.
