The Malawi Law Society (MLS) has asked the Anti-CorruptionBureau (ACB) to speed up investigations intoallegations that some individuals attempted to bribe the five-member panel of High Court judges preparing judgement in the presidential elections nullification petition case.
MLS has since called for the immediate arrest of the suspects.The MLS statement follows an ACB confirmation that Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda lodged a formal complaint to the bureau that there were attempts to bribe two of the five judges.The ACB has kept names of the suspects under wraps.
In its letter addressed to ACB director general Reyneck Matemba, the Law Society says it has learnt with grave concern allegations of attempts to corrupt judicial officers handling the Constitutional case Reference Number 1 of 2019.
MLS says failure to act on the issue has the serious potential to affect all operations of law enforcement agencies, thereby creating a recipe for loss of public trust.
