BLANTYRE (Reuters) - A Malawi court has fined a foreign journalist for breaching security rules by trying to use a business class toilet on a state airliner carrying Vice-President Justin Malewezi.
"Your Worship...I did not know that it was an offence on Air Malawi to visit the toilet in the business class," Peter Chilambwe told Presiding Magistrate Arthur Mtalimanja.
The Zambian journalist said after being fined 50 kwacha (27 pence) on a charge of conduct likely to cause a breach of public peace that he would never travel with Air Malawi again.
"They should make these rules clear when one is booking," he told Reuters.
It's always good to see the courts being used to defend the nation against dangerous men.
