ACB to act on Pakistan for sex crime dubious discharge: Chreaa asks Malawi police IG to re-arrest Hanif

The Centre for Human Rights Education Advice and Advocacy (Chreaa) has written acting Inspector General of Police Duncan Mwapasa to re-arrest a Pakistani national 57-year-old Muhammad Hanif who was dubiously discharge in a sexual assault case whose victim is a 14-year-old Malawian school girl.

Mwapasa: Asked to re-arrest Hanif and prosecute him

Hanif is alleged to have defiled the  girl in Mudi Residential Area in Limbe on March 15 this year after he acted as a Good Samaritan by offering her a lift as she walked on her way home.

The Pakistan national was arrested on March 16 by Limbe Police after the girl reported the incident before seeking medical examination at One Stop Centre (Queen Elizabeth Hospital). The medical report confirmed the girl was sexually assaulted.

Police prosecutor sub-inspector Ishmael Abubast registered the matter before Limbe Magistrate Court as case number 204 of 2020 and changed the charge to rape but then requested presiding magistrate Martin Chipofya to withdraw the case.

Now, Chreaa suspects corruption and abuse of office by law enforcers on the way the matter was disposed without trial as police did not take the victim to court but paraded “falsely”  a 25-year-old business woman—accompanied by two ladies—identified as Mary Phiri, as the one who was raped.

The women reportedly told the real victim that they received K100 000 to share in order to discharge the case.

Chreaa is asking asked the police IG to immediately arrest the Pakistan national and reinstate charges for prosecution.

The rights organisation has also asked Anti Corruption Bureau to investigate “corruption and miscarriage of justice” by police officers handling the matter.

Malawi police, MBC, ACB, stopped working for the government and have become arms of DPP.
Malawians should never allow this to happen again. How can we.expect the country to develop when no one is arrested in the many corruption cases and our broadcasting house only knows how to praise the ruling party
Don’t expect justice from a government that takes corruption to be an acceptable way of doing things.

Stupid police at it again. They are used to raping children, girls and women as witnessed in Nsundwe. They are a disgrace to our flag and the uniform they put on is a source if hatred to majority of citizens.

The person who raped the girl should be rearrested and charged for his crime but to make racists remarks is out of order. One reads almost daily about rapes of women which are done by Malawians as well. Does it make it right if the rapist is Malawian?

You brainless Malawian. Have you never hear the saying”WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY, SHUT UP” Us malawians have become the biggest racists ever. Always pointing fingers. Always quick to say azungu, amwenye, makaladi? Especially mkaladi. Have you ever thought why mkaladi are here? Only because your black grandmother was a bitch and accepted money for a srcew. If not there would be no couloureds

I think you are a stupid uneducated idiot with nothing to do you look very narrow minded and people like you can never progress in this day and age. You keep on mentioning about idi Amin he was a mad man one should learn from Zimbabwe that if you chase foreigners out in this case white farmer it can be totally devastating but I don’t suppose you will understand that as it seems that your father didn’t invest money in educating you

Police of Nyasaland in the news again for bad reasons. What has gone wrong with our police service? Why are they so money hungry? Why have they become sexual maniacs? Why have they become blue? School and good salaries matter in society. Once these are addressed, our service men will be sane.
