Ali Mohammed, who is Henrietta Rushwaya’s co-accused in the ongoing gold smuggling case has been nailed by the State amid fresh evidence that he facilitated Rushwaya’s trip to Dubai.
The court heard that from the retrieved phone call records Mohammed facilitated Rushwaya’s trip to Dubai and as such could not dissociate himself from the smuggling case.
The court also heard that Mohammed was in the country on a business trip and his visa expired.
The court also heard that Mohammed generated commercial invoices as well as packing lists specifying the weight of each bar of gold.
Rushwaya was arrested on October 26 at the Robert Mugabe International Airport as she attempted to smuggle 6kg of gold to Dubai.
