Bakang Seretse and his co accused Kenneth Kerekang and Botho Leburu are now free to travel outside the borders of Botswana.

Chief Regional Magistrate Christopher Gabanagae this morning relaxed the accused persons' bail conditions meaning they will have their passports back whenever they need to travel outside the country.

During the ruling the magistrate said the accused persons will often surrender the travel documents when they return. 

Gabanagae also gave the state 14 days to regularise the seizure of the accused persons properties.

''I understand the complexity of the case and that investigations

may take longer but the constitutional rights of the accused persons must be upheld including being tried within reasonable time,'' he said. 

Seretse and his co accused are alleged to have looted the state in the ongoing P250m National Petroleum Fund case. They are charged with money laundering as they are accused to have dip into the state money.

The case is scheduled to return on September 12, 2018.
