WALVIS BAY: The Namibian Police Force (NamPol) in the Erongo Region will no longer withdraw cases of domestic violence, and victims will have to withdraw it in a court of law.
Speaking during a media conference here today, the Commissioner of NamPol in the Erongo Region, Samuel //Hoëbeb said it is mostly female victims that withdraw cases of domestic violence, and it has become a problem for police officers.
He said the community should know that NamPol has few resources and these resources will not be used on habitual reporters – people known for reporting and then withdrawing cases on a regular basis.
//Hoëbeb said the public should be aware from now on that if a victim wants to withdraw a case, he or she should do it in a court of law to explain to the prosecution authority why they wasted the time and the resources of NamPol.
