Grace Mugabe has urged the Harare High Court to discharge an 'erroneous' order it issued against her and her son in a case in which they were being accused of grabbing properties belonging to a Lebanese businessman. As previously reported in Legalbrief Today, Jamal Ahmed took Mugabe to court after she allegedly seized his properties, demanding that he repays a $1.4m she had paid for a diamond ring that she later rejected. Judge Clement Phiri in December issued a provisional order compelling Mugabe to vacate the properties that she had seized after the deal soured. A report on the New Zimbabwe site notes that Grace and Russell Goreraza claim the application is 'misplaced'. They described the Dubai-based dealer as 'an international fraudster wanted by international police'.
