Inspector-General of Police Stella Libongani has confirmed that police have received the warrant of arrest for Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito.
Commenting on reports that the DPP faces arrest following a warrant issued against him by a Chongwe magistrate’s court, Mrs Libongani said that the police will execute warrant.
Mrs Libongani said that the warrant issued by the Chongwe subordinate court can be executed by any police officer.
She noted that the warrant is not addressed to a particular police station, adding that usually she would know which police station would do this.
Mrs Libongani said she needed time to study the documents and that she would issue a comprehensive statement on the matter when she has all the details.
The warrant was issued yesterday by the Chongwe magistrate’s court for alleged abuse of authority of office, procuring execution of documents by false pretences, uttering a false document and fraudulent contracting of debt.
