COMPENSATIONS FOR CASES ON NOLLE AND OTHER SPURIOUS CLAIMS
…Plunder of national resources through the Attorney General’s Chambers…
Amb. Emmanuel Mwamba wrote;
The recent compensations being made through consent judgements granted by the Attorney General’s Chambers are criminal and a plunder of national resources.
Most of the cases are on Nolle Prosequi, meaning the cases remain active and can be prosecuted in future. There is no Statute of limitation for criminal offences.
Attorney General, Mulilo Kabesha will be made accountable for facilitating the false compensations and those receiving these pay-outs will be made to refund the money.
