Con Court to determine the legality Jonathan Moyo’s arrest by ZACC on allegations of abusing Zimdef funds

The Constitutional Court will on Wednesday 8 February 2017 morning preside over Professor Jonathan Moyo’s court application challenging the constitutional validity of his arrest by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission (ZACC).

The Daily News reported that ZACC has admitted to the Constitutional Court (Con-Court) that it has no arresting powers under the Constitution and said indeed it does not have powers to arrest suspects but has police officers seconded to the organisation that have arresting powers, who include Munyaradzi Chacha, who was handling the Moyo’s fraud case.

Moyo’s deputy, Godfrey Gandawa is also challenging Zacc’s powers to arrest and detain. He argued that his constitutional rights were infringed by the organisations’ failure to warn and caution him of the charges he faced and further argues that the prosecutor general acted unconstitutionally by recommending the commissioner general of police to arrest him, adding that a warrant of search and seizure issued by Zacc was unlawful.
