DEC public relations manager, John Nyawali, said Mushili, 33, of house number 32 Dr Damie Street, Kansenshi, Ndola was arrested in his capacity as a shareholder and director of Marks Industries Limited.
“The seized property awaits forfeiture to the State… Mr Mushili’s arrest is in connection with the K6 billion money laundering case involving his father, which is before the courts of law,” Mr Nyawali said.
This is in a case in which Mushili is charged with ten counts of obtaining money by false pretences, fraudulently removing property from Anegi Oils Limited, money laundering and theft involving over K6 billion.
Mushili appeared before Principle Resident Magistrate, Collins Lundah who adjourned the case to August 23, 2010 for mention and setting of trial date.
Mr Lundah told Mushili that Chief Resident Magistrate Kelvin Limbani, who is handling the matter, is not available because he is sitting on a marshal court.
