The Immigration Department is still holding on to Stopilla Sunzu, Rainford Kalaba and Nathan Sinkala’s passports four days after confiscating them.
And the department on Monday continued interviewing and recording statements from the TP Mazembe trio in Ndola.
Sunzu, Sinkala and Kalaba are accused of secretly leaving Zambia illegally after failing to undergo laid down immigration formalities.
This is believed to have occured on October 12 after talks in Lusaka to try and secure their release from Mazembe prior to Zambia’s friendly against Brazil.
“Lusaka (Immigration) office will make a decision. They will communicate to us by Wednesday,” the lawyer for the trio Derrick Mulenga said on Monday.
“Today, they continued with warn and caution statements,” Mulenga added.
The three players missed Mazembe’s crucial CAF Confederations Cup match against St. Malien which the DR Congo team won 1-0 to reach the final.
