Court Code

A preservation of property order expires 120 days after the date on which notice of the making of the order is published in the Government Gazette unless there is an application for forfeiture of property pending before the High Court.


The respondent Mr Aggrey Simasiku Mwamba, together with 125 accused persons were arrested and charged in the High Court of Namibia, with the crimes of high treason, murder, attempted murder and several other crimes and offences.

The matter before the court a quo is an application to review and set aside a decision made by the Minister in the form of Government Notices in 2017, these Notices intended to give effect to sections 39, 40, 43, and 47 of the Namibia National Reinsurance Act 22 of 1998. The respondents sought to set aside the notices as well as all decisions underpinning the notices.

This appeal arises from an order by the court a quo declaring the first and second appellants’ immovable property specially executable in terms of rule 108 of the High Court Rules.


The first and second respondents (as duly appointed liquidators of the third respondent/Veralex (liquidated on 21 November 2008)) instituted an action relating to a mining licence issued to the third respondent prior to its liquidation and which mining licence the liquidators intended to assign to fourth respondent (Tamarix).

This is an appeal against the orders of the Labour Court reversing a decision of an arbitrator during arbitration proceedings in which the arbitrator found that the dismissal of the first respondent by the appellant was both procedurally and substantively fair.


The appeal concerns the question whether the High Court is empowered to make a provisional preservation of property order in the circumstances where the Prosecutor-General, in an application for a preservation order, relies on hearsay evidence and has been directed to file complete papers in terms of s 91(4) of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act 29 of 2004 (POCA).

In a claim for alleged damages based on negligent conduct, the trial court made certain credibility findings. Credibility findings revisited on appeal. The approach by a court of appeal on credibility findings of the trial court is that it will not readily disturb such findings.

This is a labour matter whereby the appellant appeals against the judgment of the Labour Court setting aside the arbitrator’s award. 


This appeal concerns the establishment of the value of the loan account of the first respondent (Seelenbinder) and the value of Fischer Seelenbinder Associates CC (FSA). The appellant (Fischer) and Seelenbinder each held 50 per cent membership interest in FSA.
