LAZ backs Shonga over Chiluba appeal


LAZ backs Shonga over Chiluba appealBy Times ReporterTHE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has said Attorney General Abyud Shonga acted within the law when he rejected calls to appeal against the London High court verdict that found second Republican president Frederick Chiluba liable for the loss of US$46 million.LAZ president Stephen Lungu said article 45 of the constitution makes the Attorney General immune to any authority outside the constitution.In an interview in Lusaka yesterday, Mr Lungu said the action by LAZ to propose that the Attorney General should appeal against the verdict was done with the full conscience that he only draws his authority from the law.Mr Lungu said the Attorney General only acted on instructions from clients who were the government on matters of such nature and that the decision to appeal any case rested with the provisions of the constitution.
