Hold it, DPP tells Task Force

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has advised the Task Force on Corruption not to proceed with the appeal against Dr. Frederick Chiluba's acquittal until the ruling is scrutinised by his office.

Chalwe Mchenga says he will be in a position to indicate whether an appeal should be lodged or not after reading the judgment.

He has advised the Task Force to submit a copy of the ruling to his office for scrutiny.

This is contained in a letter to Task Force executive chairman, Max Nkole, obtained by ZNBC in Lusaka on Monday.

Mr. Mchenga was responding to a letter by Mr. Nkole instructing MNB legal practitioners to prepare and file grounds of appeal against the the acquittal of Dr. Chiluba.

In his letter dated August 21, Mr Nkole admits that he has not yet obtained a copy of the judgement to study the reasons given for the acquittal.

He however says he wanted an appeal because of concerns raised from various sectors of society.

According to the republican constitution the DPP has power to take over and continue any criminal proceedings instituted or undertaken by any other person or authority.

He is also empowered by law to discontinue at any stage any criminal proceedings instituted or undertaken by himself, any other person or authority.
