ECN's Louw makes first court appearance
23 December 2019 | Justice
Louw was granted bail of N$8 000 and his case was postponed to 13 March 2020 for further police investigations.
Louw asked Magistrate Ivan Gawanab to reduce the bail, which was reduced with no objection to N$4 000. He may not leave the district of Windhoek without informing the investigating officers handling his case. Louw informed the court that he would pay his own legal costs. The ECN technical director was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly stole the laptops worth N$31 000 and pawned them at a local pawnshop. Rowan Van Wyk represented the State in the matter.
