A BANKER from First National Bank (FNB) yesterday testified that the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) officers visited the bank to confirm whether cash and electronic cash deposits belonging to Chishimba Kambwili were genuine.
FNB Premium Acacia branch administrator, Mukuka Chibula told Lusaka Principal Magistrate, Mwaka Mikalile that the officer went with nine copies of deposit slips which they wanted the bank to confirm or verify.
He said this was at the end of the year 2016.
This is in the matter, in which Roan Member of Parliament, Kambwili, his son Mwamba, 25, a business executive, Mwamona Engineering Technical Services, Brano Musonda, senior inspector at Mwamona are facing 39 counts of being in possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime, amounting to more than K5 million
They are also accused of making a document without authority,uttering a false document and obtaining pecuniary advantage by false pretences.
Kambwili is in another count accused of having been in possession of K180,000, property suspected to be proceeds of crime.
Mr Chibula said that sometime in 2016 the officer arrived with nine copies of Kambwili ‘s cash and electronic deposit slips which he requested him to verify whether they were genuine transactions.
Mr Chibula said that he searched for the information using the bank system and generated a report concerning the information he found relating to the transactions
He produced the nine copies of deposit slips as part of his evidence to the court but one of the defence lawyers, Keith Mweemba, objected the production of ID6 which he said was a photocopy as the law required the production of original copies.
But ACC prosecutor Martin Mayembe said the prosecution followed the right procedure in producing the documents.
Ms Mikalile in her ruling agreed with the defence saying that the prosecution was aware of the rules pertaining to production of such documents which required original copies.
She adjourned the case to October 29 2018 for production of cash deposit of ID6 and continued trial.
