The Ndola Magistrate Court has charged former Defence Minister George Mpombo with one count of issuing a dishonoured cheque amounting to K10 million.

When asked to take his plea, Mr Mpombo pleaded not guilty.

Magistrate Limbani adjourned the case to March 17, 2010 for the commencement of Trial and March 5, 2010 for Mention.

The former Defence minister had initially preferred to have the deliberations of the Court proceedings translated in Lamba but failed due to non availability of a Lamba interpreter in Court,

The Magistrate further granted an application by Defence Counsel Bonaventure Mutale to dispense the personal attendance of the accused during Mention on March 5, 2010.
He explained that the accused would be involved in Parliamentary duties since Parliament would be in session at that particular time, adding that the accused was an Area Member of Parliament for Kafulafuta constituency.
