Steven Kapoloma, MRA Head of Corporate Affairs, has confirmed the development to the local press saying he acknowledges a warrant of arrest for some two clearing agents suspected to have been facilitating the importation of finished fabrics as raw materials which is contrary to the law.
 
MDWS lawyer, John Gift Mwakhwawa, two days ago obtained an injunction stopping the trial of the MDWS officials after the Blantyre Chief Resident Magistrate, Jean Kayira, denied the defence prayer for a 30-day preparation for the case. - MBC Online Services.
