NOCMA’s fuel scandal case adjourned to 2pm

Date:

Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa has reserved his ruling to 2pm this afternoon on whether the Anti-Corruption Bureau should be allowed to tender mobile phone extracted evidence in court.

When the case resumed this morning, the defence made a submission against tendering of some piece of evidence by the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in court such as phone extractions.

One of the defense lawyers Bright Theu argued that phone-extracted evidence such as WhatsApp messages lack authenticity, rather are prone to manipulation to be relied upon.

On her part, Anti-Corruption Bureau director Martha Chizuma asked the court to allow the State tender the objected evidence saying that the defense is arguing based “on practice and not law”.

According to Chizuma the defense is more worried with technicalities but the court should focus on serving justice.

The case has been adjourned to 2pm for ruling on the matter.
