RB requests Lusaka High Court to overturn Parliament’s decision to remove his Immunity

Headlines

Former President Rupiah Banda has requested the Lusaka High Court to overturn Parliament’s decision to remove his Immunity from prosecution.
Mr Banda contends that the decision by the Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini to hear a motion moved by Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba despite his petition submitted in court was illegal and irregular.
Mr Banda said that the time the motion was being moved to stripe off his immunity, he had already petitioned the matter hence the action by Parliament was unreasonable and in excess of the jurisdiction of the National Assembly and there it should be quashed.
The former President contends that the decision by Dr Matibini to proceed to hear the motion despite a petition under cause number 2013/HP/323 having been filed in the high court was illegal and irregular.
This is according to the originating notice of motion for an order of certiorari filed on Tuesday.
