The appeal in the case where education minister Dora Siliya was cleared of charges of abuse of authority by the high court will be heard in 2010. Siliya was communication minister when a tribunal was set up to investigate allegations of abuse of authority on her part.
Former communication minister William Harrington was not satisfied by judge Phillip Musonda’s decision to clear Dora Siliya of abuse of authority of office charges and appealed to the Supreme court.
Harrington contends in the supreme court that the High Court judge erred in law and fact when it used judicial review proceedings as an appeal process by delving into the merits of the tribunal’s findings.
But the Supreme court has set January 14, 2010 as the date for hearing saying the matter will not be among the cases to be heard in the Supreme court session that will be in Kabwe.
