High Court reviews seven judgements in May


The High Court has undertaken a number of review judgements in May, setting aside convictions and sentences.

The reviews also led to reduced sentences and fines imposed by lower courts, an indication that Namibia's justice system is able to self-correct.

In line with Section 20 of the High Court Act, seven cases were taken on review by a two-member judge panel.

Most of the cases that went on review were related to drug-related trials.
