Police on the trail of millions of pounds in government funds allegedly stolen by a former Zambian president raided a solicitors’ office in North London yesterday.

The raids in Edgware were part of a corruption case being brought against Frederick Chiluba (pictured) who stepped down as president in 2001. Officers believe that Cave Malik & Co Solicitors has been receiving large sums of money from Mr Chiluba since 2001.

Zambian anti-corruption investigators accuse Mr Chiluba of transferring public funds to an account in the Zambian National Commercial Bank in London. They have filed a civil claim against him and 17 former officials over the alleged theft of £13 million.
