State seeking AG's advice in case of mother accused of killing children in Ethiopia

The State is awaiting Attorney General (AG) Festus Mbandeka's advice in the case of a Namibian woman suspected of killing her two children in Ethiopia.
The prosecutor temporarily withdrew charges against 32-year-old Kristofina Amutenya before she could be formally charged.
Amutenya is the ex-wife of a Namibian diplomat in Ethiopia.
She is suspected of having murdered her two children and attempting to kill a third child last December.
Prosecutor was due to charge her with murder before abruptly withdrawing the case and temporarily setting her free.
Justice Minister Yvonne Dausab said in the National Assembly on Wednesday that they had formally sought AG Mbandeka's advice.
She said domestic laws and international laws were involved in the case since the children died in Ethiopia.
