Hearing of a corruption case involving Vice-President Saulos Chilima which was scheduled to resume tomorrow at the High Court in Lilongwe has been adjourned to September 1, 2023.
A Notice of Adjournment from the court dated August 22, 2023signed by the registrar and addressed to ACB and defence lawyers has not given reasons for the interruption.
During the last hearing on August 1, 2023, High Court Judge Redson Kapindu ordered the Anti Corruption Bureau to within seven days make a submission and serve the court and defence relevant documents on their objection to make available certain documents.
ACB lawyer Victor Chiwala informed the court that the bureau has some documents ready while for others, they would “still need to request from other institutions.”
He also stressed that they will not share other demanded documents such as investigation reports as these contain privileged information.
