Martha Chizuma- Director of the ACB fears to that Ashock would jump bail once given bail has been vindicated as the Asian businessman close associate of Sattar has jumped bail with the assistance of Malawi Government Officials and reports indicate that he is in Zambia where he is connecting his flight to either to Dubai or India.
Our investigations have shown that with instructions from the president to key ministers to handle the matter diligently and delay it as long as possible. The key ministers used the instructions to have a duplicate passport for Nair done within 48 hours.
Nair, who is a close Associate of Sattar then left the country using uncharted routes and his passport was sent for stamping without him being present at the boarder.
We can reveal that key and very senior government officials are involved in this ploy as this will leave a gap in the procecution and the case will stall saving the president, ministers and senior government officials from being arrested.
The escape was planned for 3rd February 2022 as all security apparatus were busy with the opening of the parliament and subsequent departure of the President to Ethiopia.
Ashock was given protection by government machinery in a well planned script where judge Simeon Mdeza played a critical role of giving bail to Ashock Nair and granted him a judicial review.
Director of Public Prosecution Dr Steve Kayuni played his role buy blocking the ACB consent to prosecute to give Ashock more time to get organized dispose his assets and leave the country by jumping bail.
The reconstituted cabinet has brought in the persons of interest who wanted to ensure that all evidence is destroyed. These have facilitated the escape of the fugitive.
Ashock has left powers of attorney to his lawyer who will be able to transact on his behalf in deposing his assets. The lawyer has already put 30 assets of Ashock ranging from cottages; shops; plots Warehouses and bare plots for sale.
We await how the Malawi and British investigative agencies will handle the escape of Ashock Nair who is the principal defendant in the multi-trillion Kwacha money laundering.
