The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) says it was not informed by Attorney General Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda before the declaration of a 60-day amnesty for suspects who are linked to businessperson Zuneth Sattar’s corruption allegations.
A statement signed by ACB Principal Public Relations Officer, Egrita Ndala, says the Bureau came to know about the amnesty on Sunday through social media.
However, the Bureau says it is currently reviewing the Attorney General’s press statement on the declared amnesty in the context of the investigations on Sattar’s allegations.
According to the statement, the Bureau will update the public on any decision it may take on the matter.
The Bureau says as per its legal mandate, it is currently proceeding with the investigations against Sattar.
Sattar, a British citizen and a permanent resident of Malawi is accused of offering and giving bribes to politically exposed persons in Malawi to obtain public procurement contracts.
