SWAKOPMUND: Twenty-one-year-old Elvino Luciano Mouton made his first appearance in the Swakopmund Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on charges of alleged theft and fraud.
During his brief appearance, the State opposed bail, and the case was postponed to 06 September to allow the accused to secure legal representation.
Mouton was arrested here on Monday by officers of the Namibian Police Force (NamPol) on charges of alleged theft and fraud.
NamPol’s acting Crime Investigations’ Coordinator for the Erongo Region, Inspector George Xoagub confirmed to Nampa on Tuesday that the accused is suspected to have transferred about N.dollars 160 000 from a Standard Bank account, a bank where he is employed, to his personal account.
“The money was (allegedly) transferred by the accused over a period of time,” Xoagub said.
He could, however, not disclose additional information as it could hamper investigations.
