In the new charge, Justice Ngwuta is accused of violating various sections of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act 2012 (as amended) including Section 15 (2) (d).

The federal government had recently filed a six- count criminal charge of money laundering and corruption against the 65-year-old judge who is currently on suspension.

Following allegations of corruption against him, the Department of State Security (DSS) started investigation into his activities which culminated in the execution of a search warrant in his official residence October 8, 2016.
