Karim alongside senior police officers, including one who died while the matter was in court, are accused of allegedly scheming to defraud Malawi Police about K7 billion in the contract.

He is also being accused in another case of forging police documents to obtain a K150 million loan from Ecobank Malawi.

In the notice, the AG advises Karim that within seven days after service of the notice, he should pay K2.3 billion as indemnity claimed by his office and police.

“[This is an amount] as being the amount due and owing under a judgement dated 13th November 2020 obtained by the judgement creditor against you in the court and the sum of K3.8 billion representing interest,” reads the notice in part.

The AG says the execution of the judgement was not put aside.

Nyirenda warned that the consequences of not complying with the requisitions of the notice are that he will have committed an act of bankruptcy on which bankruptcy proceedings may be taken against him
