Auditor-general ordered to audit Task Force

Government says the process to audit the phased out Task Force on corruption has started.

Todd Chilembo, the deputy minister of Justice was quoted Thursday evening saying that the Auditor-general will soon move in to look at the books of the Task Force.

He said that if any financial irregularities will be found, the people responsible will be prosecuted.

The current government led by president Rupiah Banda believe that officers who were running the Task Force stole money meant for investigating and prosecuting former president Fredrick Chiluba.

Government claims that  it paid more than K63 billion as legal fees to local and foreign lawyers under the Taskforce on Corruption.
