Econet Zimbabwe seeks court order to block warrant

Wednesday 22 July 2020 | 14:14 CET | News
Econet was ordered to provide a list of all subscribers, mobile money transactions and financial statements from 02 January to 30 June "for the purpose of investigating or detecting a case of money laundering". The search warrant granted law enforcement officials permission to search the telecommunication firm's premises and retrieve the data in question. In an urgent High Court application on 20 July, Econet argued the warrant should be suspended while the Court determines its legality at a full hearing in future.
