The Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Court has adjourned to 2 pm today the case where the defence in the K150 million bank fraud case involving businessperson Zameer Karim alongside banker Victoria Chanza are cross-examining two State witnesses.
The defence has since cross-examined George Phuza, Head of Credit Section at Ecobank.
The cross-examination follows a move by the State to amend a charge sheet by adding a money-laundering count involving Karim.
Karim and Chanza were charged with fraud, forgery and altering documents to obtain a loan of K150 million at Ecobank.
When the court reconvenes the defence will cross-examine the second state witness who is an investigator at Malawi Police Service.
