Chinese sentenced for overstaying
ADAM HARTMAN
TWO Chinese nationals were sentenced in the Swakopmund Magistrate's Court last week for overstaying their permissible time in Namibia.
Both men were arrested on September 18 and both pleaded guilty.
Guo Wei Zhang (47) was sentenced to pay a fine of N$6 000 or spend one year in jail for contravening the Immigration Control Act by remaining in Namibia after the expiry of his visitor's permit.
Zhang apparently used an agent to process his travel documents, using 'severe misrepresentations' with regard to his rights to remain in Namibia.  On the day of had arrest, he had overstayed his welcome by five months and 27 days.
Sun Lei (31) was sentenced for contravening the Immigration Control Act by remaining in Namibia after the expiry of his worker's permit. He is a geologist assistant. He had to pay a fine of N$5 000 or spend 11 months in jail. On the day of his arrest, he had overstayed by 149 days.
Swakopmund Magistrate Bernhard Tjatjara said in his judgement that the accused - even on their first trip to Namibia - showed complete disregard for the sovereignty of Namibia and for the Immigration Control Act.
'If such a situation persists, Namibia's government and its citizens will be regarded internationally to foster a climate of perceived acceptance of international illegal immigrants,' he said.
