DRUG ENFORCEMENT COMMISSION
LUSAKA, Wednesday, September 1, 2021
The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) is in receipt of intelligence information that there are some people personating DEC officers and extorting members of the public particularly in Lusaka and Copperbelt Provinces. According to the information received, the people have been conducting illegal searches on unsuspecting members of the public and business entities and demanding for bribes from the victims for them not to be prosecuted.
Kindly note that DEC does not conduct searches on any premise without a Search Warrant. Further, officers in the Commission always carry a valid identification card and do not ask for bribes from any members of the public to pervert the course of justice.
We, therefore, wish to caution members of the public to be on high alert and report such people to the nearest Police station or DEC for possible investigation and prosecution in accordance with the law.
