Money laundering accused on bail

The Regional Magistrate Court has granted bail to three accused persons.

They are accused of money laundering, but the court ruled that there was no sufficient evidence to deny them bail.

Delivering his ruling, south regional magistrate, Mr Chris Gabanagae said although the accused, Bakang Seretse, Botho Leburu and Kenneth Kerekang were facing serious offence which attracted a fine of P20 million or 20 years imprisonment or both, it was important that various factors should be looked into before arriving at whether to grant them bail or not.

Magistrate Gabanagae said even in heinous crimes such as murder, accused persons were granted bail if sufficient facts and arguments were placed before court to decide.

He said in the matter, the prosecution simply said investigations were still fresh and that the accused should be remanded without stating how long they would take and how their release would affect the case.

They will appear for mention on January 25 next year. ENDS
