The High Court in Blantyre has found business mogul Thomson Mpinganjira with a case to answer in his alleged judgesâ€™ bribery case.
Delivering the ruling, Judge Dorothy DeGabrielle says evidence that the State produced before the court proved elements of attempting to bribe the judges that presided over the historic presidential election nullification case.
DeGabrielle has since told Mpinganjira that he can enter his defense or remain silent as per his Constitutional rights.
Prior to the development, the Lawyer representing Mpinganjira, Patrice Nkhono has told the court that they will have to discuss the ruling first before pondering on the next move if witnesses will be paraded or not.
Meanwhile, De Gabrielle has since adjourned the case to May 11, this year when the defense will make its position known whether they will parade witnessed or not.
