Seretse, who on Friday told the court that he is currently on the streets due to his property being put under judicial restraint, is demanding it back explaining that what DPP did was a clear eviction.

The house was last week seized and put under judicial restraint by the Directorate of Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC) with the help of the DPP.

Through his lawyer, Seretse approached the Court of Appeal on urgency seeking to stay the order that was issued against his house.
