Convicted Chifire Loses Right to Quash Contempt Case in High Court


Convicted anti-corruption crusader Gregory Chifire has suffered another setback with the Lusaka High Court throwing out his attempt to halt the contempt proceedings against him in the Supreme Court. Chifire was sentenced to six years for contempt by the Supreme Court for articles he wrote about the Stanbic and Savenda but had moved a motion to halt proceedings in the Supreme Court on account that it violated his constitutional rights. He sued the Attorney General seeking a declaration that the contempt proceedings against him were being conducted in breach of his Constitutional rights.
