Govt refutes allegations of being sued by UPND


Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda has refuted claims suggesting that the United Party for National Development (UPND) has taken government to the International Criminal court (ICC) and International Court of Justice (ICJ) over the election results.


During a press briefing at State House this morning, Mr Chanda told journalists that government was not preview to any court documents regarding the matter, from the ICC and ICJ as claimed by the UPND.


Mr Chanda stressed that the only case known to government was that of a private individual from Namwala in Southern Province who has sued the UPND in the said court for crimes against humanity.


He charged that the information was misleading to the public and aimed at creating divisions and anarchy in the country.


Mr Chanda however stressed that government will not allow lawlessness to prevail in the country.


He stated that government will receive the court documents once served and respond accordingly as any law abiding citizen.


But when reached for a comment UPND Spokesperson Charles Kakoma was un-available.
