Professor Luzolo Bambi urges magistrates to pursue immunities case to the end


Kinshasa, June 18, 2021 (ACP).- The former Minister in charge of Justice, Prof. Emmanuel-Janvier Luzolo Bambi Lessa on Thursday urged the magistrates to prosecute the perpetrators of corruption and embezzlement of public funds, so that they answer for their actions, during an interview with the CPA.

In this exchange relating to the Senate’s rejection of the lifting of the immunities of Senator Matata Ponyo Mapon, sued for embezzlement of funds allocated to the Bukanga Lonzo Agro-Industrial Park project, this former Special Advisor in charge of the fight against corruption and money laundering indicated that the act taken by the upper house is a denial of democracy promoting double-speed justice.

Professor Luzolo Bambi believes, ultimately, that all avenues are not exhausted to get their hands on those he describes as untouchable. ACP/
