HH waves at Supporters as he is driven to prison

The Judiciary has announced that no cellphones, tablets, cameras or similar electronic gadgets will be allowed in court during the Hakainde Hichilema treason trial which will commence Monday next week.

The Judiciary will also subject lawyers of the accused persons to accreditation and have further banned members of the public from attending the long awaited trial.

Judiciary public relations officer Veronica Chisambisha announced the measures in a statement issued today and warned that any breach of the measures in accreditation being cancelled and the person in breach being ejected from the court premises.

“Due to security reasons and limited space in the Supreme Court, the judiciary would accredit all people who will have access to the public gallery in the courtroom,” Chisambisha said.

“No party cadres from any political party will be allowed on to the judiciary premises or in the vicinity of the judiciary. Organisations and political parties are free to approach the office of the chief registrar to obtain accreditation for their members. The office of chief registrar will also facilitate accreditation for counsel, journalists and observers.

“Further note that cellphones, tablets, iPads, cameras or such similar devices will not be allowed in the Supreme Court room number one. This measure applies to journalists and legal counsel. Any breach of the said measure may result in accreditation being cancelled and the person in breach being ejected from the court premises,” she stated.

  1. This Lungu cannot be trusted. His criminals have already started interfering with Court processes. These instructions are illegal and unconstitutional.This is a Famous Treason Trial of the Century. We will come in big numbers to give moral support to HH our President. If the PF Police want shoot us let them do so.We will be there in big numbers. This Trial is of National Interest and should not be privatised or trivialized. Any Zambian is free to attend any Court Session unless it is in Camera. Why is this biased Irene Mambilima changing the Rules for HH? This Wako Niwako business must stop forthwith.
