Alfred Angula who arrested on allegations of fraud will plead to charges against him next year

WINDHOEK: National Union of Namibian Workers’ (NUNW) former acting Secretary-General Alfred Angula, who was arrested on allegations of fraud in October 2013, will plead to the charges against him next year.

The 48-year-old firebrand trade unionist, who is free on bail of N.dollars 50 000, made another appearance in the Katutura Magistrate’s Court today where his fraud and theft case was remanded until 04 February 2015 for the purpose of plea.

Angula will plead to the charges which have been levelled against him by the State, in terms of Section 119 of the Criminal Procedures Act.

He was set to plead today, but could not do so because the docket of his case was only brought before court earlier that same day.

His case was postponed, as per agreement reached between Angula’s privately-instructed defence lawyer Edwin Coetzee and Senior Public Prosecutor Arrie Husselmann who is representing the State in the matter.
