Former Chief Justice Annel Silungwe has demanded that the proceedings for the tribunal investigation suspended Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito should be conducted expeditiously.
Justice Silungwe who is chairing the tribunal made the remarks when Attorney General Likando Kalaluka applied for an adjournment during this morning’s session.
Mr Kalaluka noted that both parties to the tribunal had mutually agreed to adjourn the tribunal’s hearing.
He said this is on grounds that some lawyers who are party to the tribunal need to attend a Supreme Court session commencing in Kabwe on Tuesday.
But Justice Silungwe asked the parties to the tribunal to adjust their earlier application to adjourn the matter to 21st April 2015 to April 17,2015 for hearing of preliminary issues.
Earlier, the parties met members of the tribunal in the chambers.
This followed an application by the Attorney General for the tribunal to hear the parties in chambers on certain issues.
And Mr Nchito did not object to the application.
Mr Nchito is facing allegations of abuse of authority of office and professional misconduct.
