The development partners have underlined that Chizuma’s choice is the "right direction in addressing economic crimes and high level corruption" which has derailed development.
In a statement the countries have expressed commitment to continued engagement with the ACB, as well as other law enforcement agencies, in efforts to address economic crimes and high level corruption.
