Beddies sued for assault

10 May 2019 | Justice

Prominent tourism personality Werner Beddies is being sued in the High Court for damages stemming from an alleged assault.

In her particulars of claim, Yvonne Schadee, of Vondelhof Guesthouse in Windhoek, told the court that on 4 December last year, she went to Beddies's place of business, Safari – An African Experience at 400 Sam Nujoma Drive, to “enquire from the defendant about outstanding debt” owed to her.

She claimed that while in Beddies's office, he grabbed her by the left arm, “forcefully” pulling her up from her chair. While holding her arm, Schadee claimed Beddies then took her by the back of the neck and forced her right arm behind her back. She said he kicked her legs, “trying to force her to the floor”.

Part of the assault, Schadee said, took place in the full view of Beddies's wife and employees.

She had to undergo medical treatment and endure pain and suffering. Her claim for N$502 279 comprises medical bills of N$2 279, N$250 000 for pain and suffering and another N$250 000 for contumelia, which is a legal term for humiliation. She also asked for costs.

Beddies filed an intention to defend the matter and Tuesday, before Judge Marlene Tommasi the parties set out their case plan.

Unomwinjo Katjipuka-Sibolile appears for Schadee while Richard Mueller will defend Beddies.
