Legal Woes Piling Up For Namibia's Fishrot Accused

Former minister of justice Sacky Shanghala and his business partner James Hatuikulipi are in financial trouble, with Bank of Windhoek having obtained a judgement for the payment of N$11 million (U.S.$684,931) against them. The bank sued Shanghala and Hatuikulipi after they failed to keep up with the repayment of a loan which the bank granted in April 2017. Shanghala and Hatuikulipi, who are facing charges of corruption, fraud and money laundering in connection with the Fishrot fishing quotas corruption scandal, have been in pretrial custody since being arrested in November 2019.
