High Court refuses to release HH

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

A Lusaka High Court Judge has thrown out an application filed by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema that he be released in the treason case.

Hichilema through his lawyers was seeking the High Court to set him free stating that there were no grounds in the treason case warranting his arrest and incarceration.

But the Judge has dismissed the application.

In her ruling Judge Betty Mong’omba said it was an abuse of court processes for Hichilema and 5 others to run to the High Court when they have filed in the Constitutional Court on the same matter.

She said there was no need for the opposition leader together with his 5 treason co-accused to petition both courts on the same matter.
