Desperate Wicknell Appeals To High Court For Bail
Controversial Harare businessman Wicknell Chivayo has reportedly approached the High Court to fight for his release from remand prison, following the dismissal of his bail application at the Harare Magistrates Courts.
The appeal comes after Harare magistrate Elisha Singano ruled in favor of the State, which had argued that Chivayo is facing a serious offence which could see him being handed a lengthy prison term if convicted.
Chivayo and his company Intratek Zimbabwe (Private) Limited are being charged with fraud, money laundering and contravening two sections of the Exchange Control Act.
According to Daily News reports, his lawyer Lewis Uriri, said that they will be filing an appeal at the High Court in order to secure Chivayo’s release.
“We will be approaching the High Court today (yesterday) late afternoon to file the appeal,” Uriri said.
