Prosecutor nabbed over Mohan escape

POLICE have arrested a public prosecutor while four officers assigned to guard Inktech managing director, Mathew Mohan, who escaped from lawful custody, will be charged and tried under a tribunal.

The public prosecutor has been arrested for his failure to secure Mohan, who escaped from lawful custody on Monday.

The four officers who were assigned to guard Mohan will be charged and tried under the police tribunal.

Mohan, who is facing a charge of murder and obtaining money by false pretences, escaped at 13:30 hours from police custody after appearing for mention in the Lusaka magistrates court.

Police spokesperson Bonny Kapeso said the prosecutor has been arrested and charged with aiding Mohan to escape.

Mr Kapeso said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that the officer, who is in police custody, is expected to appear in court today.

He said the police officers who were left to guard Mohan are being interrogated on the matter.

“We have effected the directive by the Commissioner of Police, Graphael Musamba, to arrest those involved in this matter and the prosecutor is remanded in custody and will appear in court today.

“He has been charged with aiding the escape of the fugitive because under every procedure, every suspect facing murder charges must be guarded strictly, and so one wonders why that happened,” Mr Kapeso said.

He said Mohan is still on the run and that police have launched a manhunt.

Mr Kapeso said the Police Service is confident that it will arrest the fugitive because all officers, including those at border points, have been alerted.

He appealed to members of the public with information on the matter to report to the nearest police station.
Mohan is among suspects who are alleged to have murdered a Lusaka businessman of Asian origin.

And Police in Nchelenge have arrested six people in connection with the burning of a house belonging to a presenter at a local radio station, reports the Zambia News and Information Services.

Luapula Province police chief, Auxencio Mbewe, said the six men were picked up at dawn in Kenani area yesterday.

Mr Mbewe said the men are in police custody to help with investigations into the case where Philip Kambiko lost property worth millions of kwacha after unknown people burnt his house on Saturday night.

He said the suspected arsonists who were apprehended with the help of the community are being held at Nchelenge police station.

Mr Mbewe paid tribute to members of the public for the support rendered to the police in investigating the matter.

It is suspected that Mr Kambiko’s house was burnt by people who were not happy with his condemnation of destructive fishing methods being used on Lake Mweru.
This was on one of his radio programmes.
