As members of the public may be aware, the Anti-Corruption Bureau in cooperation with the National Crime Agency, UK is investigating allegations that Zuneth Sattar, a British citizen and Permanent Resident of Malawi has been offering and giving bribes to Politically Exposed Persons in Malawi to obtain public procurement contracts.
On Sunday, 9th January, 2022 , through social media, the Bureau came to know about the above-mentioned Press Release regarding Zuneth Sattar. The last paragraph of the press release seems to suggest that the Attorney General is granting 60-day amnesty to all those who might have corruptly accumulated wealth through dealings with amongst others Zuneth Sattar.
The Bureau has received numerous inquiries on the matter from various journalists and the public. The Bureau would therefore, like to inform the public that it is currently reviewing the Attorney General’s press release on Amnesty in the context of the investigations it is currently conducting on allegations against Zuneth Sattar and will update the public on any decision it may take. In the meantime, the Bureau as per its legal mandate is proceeding with the investigations against Zuneth Sattar.
