Police Commissioner Holomo Molibeli told CNN that he will remain in custody in Thaban until June 16 after his bail was revoked on charges that he did not appear in court when he first appeared in court in February.
Molibeli said the former first lady was behind bars in a technical matter because the state was not allowed to argue against her bail during the hearing.
The commissioner said he was released on অনেক 1,000 bail (৮ 56) long after his release.
CNN has repeatedly tried to reach out to Maisaya Thaban’s lawyer, but they have yet to hold a hearing. Neither she nor her husband, former Prime Minister Thomas Thaben, has spoken publicly about the allegations.
Molibeli said he would appear in court again after his re-arrest where due process would be followed.
He did not say when.
“He’s in jail for telling us,” Molibeli said.
In May 2013, Maesaya Thabne was charged with ordering the murder of Lipolio Thabun, who was shot near his home in Meseru, the capital of Lesotho.
The former first lady fled the country in January despite a police warrant for her arrest, but turned herself in to the police in February after spending a few weeks in South Africa.
