We have failed to arrest Mpombo – Police

The court today heard that bench warrant to arrest Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria George Mpombo has not been executed because the victim is out of the country.

The Police officer told the court in Lusaka today, April 8, 2013 that they have not been able to arrest and take Mpombo to court because he is out of the country. He said the Police has since written to Ministry of Foreign Affairs to seek assistance.

Mpombo has been found with a case to answer in a matter he is charged for abuse of office while he served as Defense Minister under the Rupiah Banda MMD Administration.

The case has since been adjourned to May 21, 2013.
