State wants cop defilement case transfer to higher court

The State  prosecutors have asked the Limbe magistrates court to transfer to a higher court a case in which a police officer is accused of defiling a 17-year-old girl in police cell.

Chikondi Chijozi, CHREAA deputy executive director hired to represent DPP as its lawyer

The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) asked the court to transfer the case  against  the police officer, Andrew Chagaga to Blantyre Chief Resident Magistrate Court.

The court was on Wednesday expected to start hearing the case.

However, Chikondi Chijozi, one of the lawyers representing the office of the DPP, asked the court to transfer the case to Blantyre Chief Resident Magistrate where the suspect can  be given a stiffer sentence when convicted.

According to Chijozi, Magistrate Tsoka Banda will deliver a ruling on the application on 9th February 2021.

However, Ian Kumpita, lawyer representing Chagaga objected the application by the sSate arguing that there is no valid reason to transfer the case to another court.

Zititayitsa nthawi izi! I would strongly advise the defendant to skip all these unnecessary steps and go straight to Judge Kapindu’s court. My good no-nonsense buddy Redson Kapindu will take care of you very, very well. He’s extremely good with such cases. I’ve already put in the “good word” for you. Just do it. You’ll thank me later. Ase!
