A suspected fuel dealer, who allegedly smuggled 19 thousand litres of diesel into the country from Mozambique, has been denied bail.

Charles Dube allegedly smuggled 19 thousand litres of diesel from Mozambique through an illegal entry point in Chipinge.

The court heard that on the 14th of this month police received a tip off that Dube was smuggling fuel into the country.

It is the State’s case that an ambush was set up and he was caught in possession of 19 thousand litres of diesel which he had allegedly brought into the country through illegal means.

Dube was remanded in custody to this Tuesday for bail hearing.
