THE case in which Post Newspapers proprietor Fred M’ Membe and his reporter Mukosha Funga are accused of publishing classified information has been committed to the High Court.
M’membe and Funga are in court after the Post Newspapers published a classified letter written by the Anti-Corruption Commission chair person Rosewin Wandi to the Republican President.
Lusaka Magistrate Humphrey Chitalu committed the matter to the High Court after the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions issued the certificate. Magistrate Chitalu also informed the accused persons to stop appearing in the subordinate court. And the prosecution team amended the indictment to change the dates when the offence was allegedly committed.
The application to amend the indictment was allowed as there was no objection from the defence.
