Controversial businessman and socialite Genius Ginimbi Kadungure’s application for temporary release of passport has been granted by a Harare magistrate after the State consented to the request.
Kadungure is set to travel outside the country until May 10 and Harare magistrate, Barbra Mateko granted his application.
His reporting conditions have been relaxed until he returns in the country next month.
Kadungure is facing charges of tax evasion in which the State is alleging that between February 2009 and May 2016, his company Piko Trading Private Limited misrepresented to the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) that it made total sales of $2 777 678, inclusive of Value Added Tax, when in actual fact the company had made sales amounting to $9 092 951.
To that end, ZIMRA suffered a prejudice of $417 940.
Kadungure is also being accused of evading tax, with ZIMRA suffering a total prejudice of $3 468 949.
