Chinese national formally charged, denied bail


Chinese national Zhou Zheng Zhong has appeared before the chief resident magistrate court in Lilongwe where he has been formally charged of defilement.

Zhou is suspected to have been defiling a 15-year- old girl in Area 48, warm heart villa in Lilongwe where her parents used to work for him as cleaners.

State prosecutor Sub-Inspector of Lingadzi police Patrick Mkumbi has asked the court to adjourn the case as they have failed to bring witnesses arguing they were chased out of the suspect’s compound.

Mkumbi says the victim’s father was fired and given 90 thousand kwacha as payment for the three months he worked for the accused.

Meanwhile,the court has denied him bail again.

The court noted that the suspect is a man of influence as he faciliated the firing of the victim’s parents while in police custody.
It has asked him not to re-apply for bail until the witnesses give their statements.
The court has also asked the state to bring the witnesses on the day of the next hearing.
The case has been adjourned to 11 October, this year.
