Chinese diamond mining company Anjin Investments has approached the Constitutional Court demanding to be reinstated after the government kicked it out of the Marange diamond fields last year. The company is suing Mines Minister Walter Chidakwa, commissioner-general of police Augustine Chihuri, the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation and the Zimbabwe Consolidated Diamond Company (ZCDC), as respondents.
Part of the company’s court papers read:
This is an application directly to this honourable court in terms of Section 85 (1) (a) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe Amendment (No.20) Act, 2013 for the protection of the applicant (Anjin)’s constitutional rights which have been infringed by the actions and conduct of the first (Chidakwa), second (Chihuri) and fourth (ZCDC) respondents since February 22, 2016, whose conduct persists and has had a significant and detrimental effect on the applicant and has caused it a substantial harm.
