The Immigration Department has deported Top Star Communications Company Limited chief executive officer Yi Jian following the signing of a warrant by Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo.

The Department’s public relations officer Namati Nshinka has stated in a statement today that 36-year-old Yi had conducted himself in a manner that warranted deportation under the Laws of Zambia.

He left Zambia on Thursday, September 12, 2019 via Kenneth Kaunda International Airport.

“…there were reasonable grounds to believe that his presence in Zambia and conduct were likely to be a danger to peace and good order. This is in accordance with section 39 (2) of the Immigration and Deportation Act No. 18 of 2010 of the laws of Zambia,” Nshinka stated.

He stated that Yi was on record to have used derogatory and abusive language not only towards employees of Top Star, but also towards government officials on multiple occasions.

“Further, during his time as Chief Executive Officer, the company has been abrogating certain provisions of the Employment Code No. 3 of 2019. Mr Yi Jian was deported to his country of origin via Kenneth Kaunda International Airport around 22:30 hours, aboard an Emirates Flight,” stated Nshinka.
