China Copper Mines (CCM) has written to the Anti Corruption Commission asking the Commission to dismiss allegations of corruption leveled against it and two named Ministers.
CCM Director Yu Wang Ping in his letter to the ACC Director General obtained by QFM News says allegations that his company bribed Mines Minister Christopher Yaluma and Copperbelt Minister Mwenya Musenge are false.
He says the allegations should be dismissed with the contempt they deserve as they are simply meant to tarnish the reputations of the two Ministers.
Mr Ping explains that China Copper Mines in Chingola has been operating since 2010 and bought its mine legally and complied with all legal requirements.
He states that Mr Yaluma and Mr Musenge were not there when his company bought the mine in 2010 under the MMD Government, and that at no time has CCM bribed the tow Ministers.
Mr Ping has accused his company’s competitors of trying to tarnish the good reputation that his company has earned over the years in its operations by spreading false information about its conduct.
