Former DPP Siyuni Lilian 

The Constitutional Court has dismissed a petition by former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lilian Siyunyi, who is challenging the decision of President Hakainde Hichilema for having suspended and later dismissed her.

In the judgement read by Judge Mudford Mwandenga, the court says procedure was followed leading to the former DPP’s removal from office.

He says the Judicial Complaints Commission (JCC) was obliged to recommend to the President her removal from her office and that the President was in turn obliged to immediately remove her from the office as DPP.

According to Diamond TV, Judge Mwandenga says Siyunyi’s petition was therefore dismissed for lacking merit.
