The High Court in Lilongwe has adjourned the sentencing of Cashgate convict and former deputy director for tourism Leonard Kalonga to Wednesday June 22, 2016.
The development follows a new document submitted by Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Marry Kachale when the court resumed on Tuesday in the capital.
Kachale asked the Judge to consider all the documents including the ones seized by ACB when delivering judgment on the case.
Meanwhil High Court Judge Fiona Mwale has ordered the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to produce and surrender copies of documents ceased Kalonga within 72 hours which Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mary Kachale said has names of beneficiaries of K4.4 billion ($5.8 million) Cashgate proceeds.
Mwale made the order after an application from Kachale, who is the joint leading top prosecutor with ACB deputy director general Reyneck Matemba.
The missing document is said to have been found at Kalonga’s house by ACB investigators who searched his house in 2013.
On August 26 last year, the High Court convicted Kalonga on his own plea of guilty for stealing K3.7 billion ($4.9 million) in the ongoing Cashgate trials.
