Zambia anti-drug agency arrests 6 people over money laundering


Zambia’s anti-drug agency on Friday announced the arrest of six people, including three foreign nationals over money laundering activities.

The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC), through its Anti-Money Laundering Investigations Unit, said it arrested the six for money laundering activities.

The offences were alleged to have been committed between January 1, 2020, and July 4, 2020, according to spokesperson Theresa Katongo.

She said in a statement that the accused people were also found in possession of two key USB loggers, one USB flash disk, and one laptop containing software primarily designed to overcome security measures for the protection of data found on the core banking system.

The devices enabled the accused people to access the core banking system of a named bank, she added. (Xinhua/NAN)
