Two Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) say they are just waiting for the court to set date for hearing in a case they are accused of swindling UNAIDS K7.4 million.
Lawyer for HRDC vice chairperson Gift Trapence and member MacDonald Sembereka says his clients are expected back in court after police refused to drop the charges after the director of public prosecutions (DPP).
Lawyer for the HRDC officials, Khwima Chizi said following the decision by the police to refuse closing the case, the court is yet to set new dates for the hearing.
“As soon as we get the dates, we will be back in the court,” said Chizi.
Trapence and Sembereka face mismanagement of the UNAIDS, forgery, fraud, money laundering and running unregistered organization.
The director of public prosecutions Mary Kachale wrote the acting Inspector General of police Duncan Mwapasa to withdraw the case after UNAIDS said they were no longer interested in the case after the two suspects paid back all the money.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
