WINDHOEK: A former employee of the AfriSam Cement distribution company arrested in April last year (2011) for fraud involving over N.dollars 71 million at the company still awaits a decision by the office of Prosecutor-General Martha Imalwa.
Esmerelda Martina Majiedt, 46, re-appeared before Windhoek Magistrate Ingrid Lerato Unengu on Friday morning when she was informed that a decision by the PG’s office is not yet made available to the prosecution.
As a result of this, her case was remanded until 16 November this year for the PG’s office to pronounce itself on the matter.
Majiedt was arrested last year (2011) by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)’s investigators, who alleged that she was involved in corruption and fraud at the AfriSam Cement distribution company between 2007 and February 2011.
The suspect’s alleged fraudulent actions are said to have caused the cement firm a loss of N.dollars 71 321 647 over the past five years.
Transwell Davies of the local law firm Bradley Basson Incorporated respresented Majiedt today.
She remains in police custody at the police holding cells at the Hosea Kutako International Airport with no option to post bail until her next court appearance on 16 November this year.
Public Prosecutor Vincent Kwenani appeared for the State today.
