Chinese money changers freed, arrested without evidence

3 Chinese nationals  Fang Wei, Wu Huanjiu and Wei Wei were acquitted by Harare Magistrate Nomsa Sabarauta after the State witness and investigating officer Saydon Chinzete admitted in court that they were arrested without evidence.

The trio’s lawyer, Hussein Ranchhod had asked Chinzete, during trial proceedings to provide evidence that his clients were involved in selling cash, to which Chinzete replied that the suspects were arrested without direct evidence. The Chinese nationals had told the court that the $50 000 they were found in possession of was meant to pay September salaries of their 176 mine employees, who had no bank accounts. They provided the State with application for cash letters from the FBC Bank and some of the money had been advanced to them by a colleague to enable them to pay the salaries.
