British billionaire killed employee in Namibia over sex demand
London, March 9, 2021 (AltAfrica)-A British billionaire has been charged with murder in Namibia after a member of his staff was reportedly shot dead following an argument sex demand
Harvey Boulter, 51, is said to have scuffled with the manager of his 66,000-acre farm, Gerhardus van Wyk, during a barbecue on the evening of February 27.
An unnamed source told the newspaper: ‘The row started at the braai [barbecue]. Harvey, who was very drunk, said that Liani would have to have sex with him every other night to repay the favour for allowing thet newlyweds Gerhard Jr and Liani, who also worked on the farm, to build their home on the property. The Times report added.
‘Gerhard Jr objected to that, they began to argue, Harvey pulled out his weapon and then when his father came to try and get the gun off him, they wrestled and it went off.’
The local police chief claimed Mr Boulter had become aggressive and threatened the family with the weapon.
A single shot reportedly struck the billionaire’s hand and hit the victim in the stomach, who died en route to hospital in a car with Gerhard Jr, Liani and his wife Alta.
Mr Boulter was arrested shortly after the incident at the remote property, according to local media.
In 2015 Mr Boulter was accused of embezzling £400 million entrusted to him by investors through an network of companies under the Porton Capital group.
The billionaire, who was living in Dubai at the time, denied wrongdoing and legal claims against him have not progressed.
He moved to the US the following year but for the past two years was said to have spent most of the last two years at Kaross Farm in Namibia after divorcing the mother of his three children.
The businessman is best-known for revealing that former Tory defence secretary Liam Fox had taken on close friend Adam Werrity as a bogus ‘adviser’, bringing him on official trips abroad and giving him access to the Ministry of defence.
The allegations led to Mr Fox’s resignation after a cabinet inquiry found he had breached ministerial conduct rules. Source
