LAWYERS representing sacked ZIFA boss, Henrietta Rushwaya have warned they would seek refusal of remand further remand if the state fails to complete its investigations by the end of the month.
Rushwaya is accused of masterminding the Asiagate scandal in which Zifa officials were reportedly involved in match-fixing.
She faces 11 counts of concealing transactions from a principal, two counts of fraud and 15 others of bribery involving US$1 million.
Investigations were supposed to have been completed by the end of December last year, but the state said Friday it was not ready for trial prompting Harare magistrate, Anita Tshuma to postpone the case to April 27.
However, Rushwaya’s lawyer, Jonathan Samkange said if the state does not have its case in order by then he would apply for the scrapping of further remand.
Meanwhile, Tshuma also granted an application for further relaxation of bail conditions, and allowed Rushwaya to permanently keep her passport but said a requirement to regularly report to the police would remain in place.
"The accused was investigated for two years and she was aware of it so she is not a flight risk," Tshuma said.
"Reporting conditions must stay because the charges are of a serious nature."
