The High Court in Lilongwe has dismissed an application by cashgate suspect, Paul Mphwiyo, to access his passport to enable him travel to South Africa for medical attention.

Mphwiyo’s passport is currently with the Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) and whenever he wants to travel outside the country, he applies for a variation of his bail conditions so that the bureau can release it.

According to the ruling Justice Esmie Chombo made on Monday, Mphwiyo has to make a fresh application with necessary supporting documents.

Other issues cited by State are that there was no guarantee that Mphwiyo would not be a flight risk.
