Free John Mussa Online Campaign Gets New Breath: Lawyers Step In To Rescue The Teenager

Some lawyers have shown interest to seek a review over a case of a 19-year-old Mussa John  who was sentenced to eight years imprisonment for possessing 78 plastic bags of Indian hemph without licence.

Counsel Alexious Kamangira says he has already met Mussa in his preliminary investigation of the matter before taking it up to the Chief Resident Magistrate in Blantyre.



On the other hand, executive director for the Centre for Human Rights Education, Advice and Assistance (CHREAA), Victor Mhango, says they will meet the convict on Monday on the same cause.

Mhango says they will be responding to a call by some citizens to intervene on the matter, saying a fine or a suspended sentence would have been fair to the suspect being a first offender and considering his age.
