The two former Namibian ministers accused of accepting fishing quota bribery had approached the Supreme Court to regard their arrests as illegal, court documents on Friday showed.
The accused ministers, former Minister of Fisheries Bernhard Esau and former Minister of Justice Sacky Shanghala, are also seeking nullification of the High Court ruling on 27 December that ruled that the matter of deeming their arrests illegal was not urgent and struck off the court roll.
Esau and Shanghala in December failed to have their arrests over the fishing corruption scandal deemed illegal.
The accused ministers and their four co-accused were allegedly involved in a fishing bribery scandal that generated kickbacks worth about 10 million U.S. dollars. Enditem
