Zambia Police have raided the premises of Mipal Printers Ltd, which is just next to the Patriotic Front Headquarters on Lumumba Road and confiscated thousands of copies of The Post newspapers.
Newspaper owner Fred Mmembe has vowed that he will print the paper despite the court order to stop the print of the publication.
Mipal printing company appears to be among printing presses behind the production of the illegal publication of the Post Newspaper.
ZRA conducted the entry and search exercise as provided for by section 9 of the Customs and Excise Act.
The ZRA search discovered the Mipal Printers has been printing Newspapers for the Post Newspapers whose asserts have been sized over unpaid tax.
ZRA officers have since locked MIPAL Printers and secured the premises awaiting the availability of senior company officials.
A ZNBC News crew that visited the Printing Firm was informed that the search took place Wednesday night following a whistle blower’s alert.
The Post has had its assets seized by ZRA and the publication which is part of revenue process was halted for default of over K53 million in tax.
The Post has allegedly been a regular tax defaulter and tax offender since 2008.
It has allegedly hid behind numerous tribunal appeals, and court orders and utter evasion to fail to pay.
A case that apparently started in 2009 was concluded in the Supreme Court last month which allowed ZRA to recover various taxes including Value Added Tax (VAT) and employees Pay As You Earn (PAYE) monies owed to it.
Among other items found at the premises were satellite phones, US dollar bills and other items.
