Poli v Minister of Finance & Economic Development 1987 (2) ZLR 302 (SC)

Contravention of Exchange Control Regulations. Protection against self-incrimination at trial in constitution is limited to a person appearing before a court at a judicial investigation or determination of his case. The protection does not protect someone against self-incrimination outside the time covered by the trial. There is nothing to prevent a person from being compelled by law to provide information which might be used in evidence against him.
