Family appeals for justice as brother’s Appeal languishes in Legal Limbo

Estimated read time 2 min read

In a plea for justice, a concerned family member has come forward to shed light on the case of Chrispin S. Lubosi, a man who was arrested and convicted between 2017 and 2018 for a crime he insists he did not commit. The case in question involves an accusation of poisoning a couple in Namwala, a small village where Lubosi resided. Despite the release of forensic results from the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) indicating that the couple died of natural causes, Lubosi found himself sentenced to 20 years in prison for manslaughter.

The family’s quest for justice took a significant turn in 2019 when Lubosi, with the assistance of the Legal Recourse Foundation, lodged an appeal against his conviction and sentencing. This appeal was recorded under case number HL/11/2019, raising the hopes of those who believed in Lubosi’s innocence.

However, the family now faces an agonizing wait as the appeal appears to have stalled in the legal system, raising concerns about the due process and transparency of the judicial system. Despite their best efforts to reach out to the legal officer responsible for Lubosi’s case, they have received disheartening news. The legal officer explained that the case has yet to be reviewed by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), leaving Lubosi’s fate hanging in the balance.

This prolonged legal limbo has left the family distraught and puzzled. They are determined to see justice served for Lubosi, who is currently serving his sentence in Mwembeshi Prison. Concerns about the fairness and transparency of the judicial process have intensified, as Lubosi’s case remains unresolved despite forensic evidence suggesting his innocence.

The family is now appealing for individuals with legal knowledge and expertise to offer guidance and support in navigating this complex situation. They remain resolute in their pursuit of justice for Lubosi and are hopeful that their plea for assistance will help bring clarity and resolution to a case that has lingered in uncertainty for far too long.

As the family and legal experts examine the circumstances surrounding Chrispin S. Lubosi’s case, the public’s attention is drawn to the critical importance of a just and expeditious legal process that safeguards the rights of all individuals, regardless of their circumstances.
