Chisale rebuffed at court

By Our Reporter

Lovemore Chikopa, a Supreme Court judge yesterday dismissed a court application for an injunction by Norman Chisale who was seeking relief from further arrests.

Justice Chikopa observed that granting such an injunction is tantamount to unnecessary interference in law enforcement operations of the Malawi police.

Chisale, Peter Mutharika’s former security aide, was arrested on three occasions for a round of charges including murder of ACB’s Issa Njaunju.

His lawyer, Chancy Gondwe, on July 31st, asked the High Court through Justice Charles Mkandawire to issue him an injunction that should stop police officers from arresting his client on soon-to-be charges leveled against him.

But Gondwe was cold-shouldered, and he later went on for an appeal at the Supreme Court where Justice Chikopa ordered an interparty hearing between the appellant and the respondent.

The hearing which was meant to be heard on August 12 was postponed to yesterday. This means continued stay of Chisale at Maula prison where he is remanded.
