She was later released on bail.
On Friday (local time), the High Court revoked Thabane’s bail after police challenged an earlier ruling, saying she could be a flight risk.
The appeal also included witness testimony saying they feared for their lives if she was released on bail.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Paseka Mokete said officers went to Thabane’s home to inform her of the court’s decision and re-arrest her, but she was not there. The former first has still not been found.
“We need to arrest her so that she could apply for a bail while in detention,” Dep. Comm. Mokete said.
