WARRANT OUT ON EX-CHIEF JUSTICE

The Swaziland High Court has re-issued a warrant for the arrest of sacked Chief Justice Michael Ramodibedi.

Ramodibedi, a Lesotho national, was sacked on 17 June 2015 by King Mswati III, the absolute monarch of Swaziland.

Ramodibedi left Swaziland and is reported to have returned to Lesotho.

The original warrant for arrest was issued on 17 April 2015 on 23 charges relating to alleged abuse of power. 

The warrant was rescinded by Judge Jacobus Annandale during the nearly two months that Ramodibedi was suspended from office and under self-imposed house arrest. 

A Judicial Service Commission hearing found Ramodibedi guilty of misconduct. Ramodibedi did not attend the hearing, citing ill health.

Following the hearing, King Mswati sacked Ramodibedi.

The warrant was re-issued by High Court Judge Nkululeko Hlophe on Wednesday (24 June 2015).
