By Citizen Reporter @TheCitizenTz

Dar es Salaam. Kisutu resident magistrate court has adjourned a money laundering case against Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) President Jamal Malinzi and two others to July 31.

Resident magistrate Wilbard Mashauri postponed the case after the prosecution side pleaded for more time to complete investigations.

Other accused in the case are TFF Secretary General Mr Celestine Mwesigwa and TFF Accountant Ms Nsiande Mwanga.

Malinzi and his co-accused were arraigned last Friday facing several counts including over Sh1.3 billion money laundering which are unbailable offenses according to the Tanzanian law.

The accused are facing 28 counts including forgery, uttering forged documents and US $375,418 money laundering.

In the case, Mr Malinzi is separately facing 27 counts. According to prosecution, on June 5, 2016 within the City of Dar es Salaam, Mr Malinzi and Selestine forged executive committee resolution to show that the executive committee of TFF decided to change its signatory bank accounts from Edgar Leonard Masoud to Nsiande Isawafo Mwanga.
