M’membe charged with ‘criminal trespass’ of his property

Outgoing President Edgar Lungu and his police have found charges to slap on Post Newspaper Editor-in- chief Fred M’membe, his wife Mutinta Mazoka M’membe and Deputy Managing Editor Joseph Mwenda.
Police Deputy Spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said the trio have been charged with ‘breaking into a building with intent to commit a felony’ contrary to section 304 of the Penal Code Act.
They have also been charged with ‘Criminal trespass (of their own property) contrary to section 306(a) of the Penal Code Act and have further been charged with ‘Uttering a false document Contrary to section 352 of the Penal Code Act.
Hamoonga claimed that the police believes that the Order that was produced by the Post from the Revenue Appeals Tribunal is not authentic.
The trio have been released on police bond but will only appear in court next week on Thursday to allow President Lungu and his team to study how they will go about their senseless charges.
