A ruling in a legal battle between prominent local defence lawyer, Sisa Namandje, and the Law Society of Namibia (LSN), is expected to be made public in the High Court on Friday.
Initially, High Court Judge Herman Oosthuizen, who is presiding over the matter, was scheduled to give his ruling on 24 July 2020.
However, on Monday, a senior public relations official in the Office of the Judiciary, Ockert Jansen officially confirmed to NAMPA that the judgement on the legal tussle between the lawyer and the LSN will now be handed down on 17 July 2020.
In this legal showdown, the LSN wants the court to issue an order directing lawyer Namandje to open up his financial records for their ongoing investigations, but he is allegedly not cooperating with the body.
