Its director general, Gilles alix, and the manager of the international division of its communications subsidiary Havas, Jean-Philippe Dorent, were also taken into custody, a judicial source added. Investigators are probing allegations that the tentacular group, which has interests in construction, logistics, media, advertising and shipping, the group’s african logistics arm has several port and rail concessions in africa. communications work done by Dorent for Guinean President alpha Conde and togolese President Faure Gnassingbe.

Setya Novanto, once among politicians, had been accused of taking millions of dollars in kickbacks and bribes linked to the national roll-out of government ID cards. “We have found defendant Setya Novanto, beyond reasonable doubt, guilty of violating anti-corruption law,” presiding Judge Yanto told the packed Jakarta courtroom. Novanto -- once praised by Donald trump as one Indonesia’s would need time to consider an appeal. His months-long trial came after a string of manoeuvres -- including allegedly faking an injury in a car crash -- which critics say the 62-year-old used to dodge serious charges. Prosecutors had demanded a 16-year sentence. Judge Yanto, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, the .4 million prosecutors had wanted him to pay as restitution to the state. Novanto, who had managed to sidestep corruption allegations in the past, was accused of playing a key role in embezzlement from the from state coffers. Several other and businessmen have been charged in the scandal. the scale of the graft shocked many Indonesians even in one of the world’s most corrupt countries. Payoffs and bribes are rife at all levels of society and endemic in many state agencies, including the police force.

No one has yet been arrested. the verdict comes several years after the former chief justice of Indonesia’s constitutional court, akil Mochtar, was jailed for life for accepting bribes to issue favourable decisions in local election disputes. It was the country’s heaviestever sentence for corruption. Novanto, who dodged questioning by the anti-corruption agency for months, was arrested in hospital in November after he claimed to have been injured in a car crash. the reported accident came shortly after a failed raid on his palatial estate. Indonesia’s graft buster subsequently charged Novanto’s then-lawyer and doctor with obstructing justice over allegations they booked a hospital room for the supposedly injured politician before his purported car accident happened. Novanto had been forced to he was caught on tape trying to extort a stake in the Indonesian unit of US mining giant Freeport- McMoran in exchange for extending the company’s right to operate in the archipelago. - Nampa / AFP Monday, 23 April 2018 Centre Tal Street 07:00-16:00 United House Centre 08:30-16:00 Old Mutual Life 09:00-14:30 Swakopmund Town (Ferdinand Stich Str 4) 13:00-18:00 Tuesday, 24 April 2018 Centre Tal Street 07:00-16:00 United House Centre 08:30-16:00 Tsumeb Town (Private Hospital) 11:00-18:00 MTC Head Office 09:00-14:30 Walvis Bay Town (Behind Welwitschia Medi-park) 13:00-18:00 Wednesday, 25 April 2018 Centre Tal Street 07:00-16:00 United House Centre 08:30-16:00 NIMT (Tsumeb) 09:00-16:00 Namwater 09:30-15:00 NIMT Arandis (Build & Trade) 09:00-16:00 Thursday, 26 April 2018 Centre Tal Street 07:00-18:00 United House Centre 08:30-16:00 NIMT (Tsumeb) 09:00-16:00 NIMT Arandis (Main Campus) 09:00-16:00 Friday, 27 April 2018 Centre Tal Street 07:00-16:00 United House Centre 08:30-16:00 Dundee Precious Metals (Tsumeb) 09:00-15:00 Agra (Lafrenz) 09:00-15:00 Pick ‘n Pay (Swakopmund) 10:00-15:00 Sponsored by: Okakarara Town Council Private Bag 2104, Okakarara, Namibia Tel: 067 – 317084 / 317075, Fax: 067 – 317202, E-mail: Vision: ‘To become a sound vibrant, economically developed Municipality and be a model public institution’ PUBLIC NOTICE Okakarara Town Council has as from 01 April 2018 commenced with the General Valuation of all rateable and nonrateble properties within its jurisdiction, the local authorities Act 1992 Act 23 of 1992) PART XIV as amended requires a general valuation to be completed every five (5) years for all rateable properties in the local authority area.
