A 45-year-old man is denied bail in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate’s Court

A 45-year-old man who allegedly killed a 33-year-old man at a farm in the Vaalgras area was denied bail in the Keetmanshoop Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

Court documents seen by Nampa indicate that the accused, Paul Oarum, made his first appearance before Magistrate UchenKonjore.

Bail was denied because police investigations are at an early and sensitive stage and because the State fears that he might interfere with State witnesses.

During the court hearing on Monday, the accused’s right to bring a formal bail application before the court if he wishes to be released on bail and to obtain legal representation was explained to him.

Konjore then postponed the case to 29 July 2020 for further police investigations and for the accused to obtain legal aid.
