Track K2 trillion oil scam fraudsters – TIZ
Transparency International Zambia has called on law enforcement agencies to expeditiously investigate and prosecute the K2 trillion oil scam fraudsters.
TIZ Executive Director Goodwell Lungu tells QFM News that law enforcement agencies need to move with a great sense of urgency to avoid overlooking and killing such cases as they have done in the past.
Mr Lungu says TIZ further calls on the Anti Corruption Commission to turn the call by the Republican President that they are no longer an effective institution into positive action by awakening from the slumber.
He says as TIZ, they have always had hope in the ACC that it is just a sleeping giant that can perform to public expectation.
He has also urged the ACC to take the President’s concern seriously as it has been a major concern of TIZ and many citizens.
Mr Lungu adds that TIZ believes the ACC has the capacity of translating the challenge into positive and formidable actions.
He further states that it is an undeniable fact that law enforcement agencies in certain cases have been slow in executing cases to the extent of abandoning very straight forward cases resulting into the loss of billions and trillions of public funds.
He says the Anti Corruption Commission and law enforcement agencies should equally take advantage of readily available information which they can use in their investigations.
Mr Lungu has since implored the ACC and other law enforcement agencies to take advantage of the prevailing political will in fighting corruption and translate it into tangible results of preventing the plunder of trillions of public funds as they have the potential to prosecute these cases and send clear deterrent warning message to other would be offenders.
