In 2012, the former president of Zambia, Rupiah Banda and his son Henry Banda engaged Amsterdam & Partners LLP to represent them against a series of false, politically motivated allegations by the new government of the now late President Michael Sata.

Amsterdam & Partners LLP was successful in securing the dismissal of a baseless Interpol Red Notice issued against Henry Banda despite a total absence of evidence or even charges by the Zambian police. Former President Rupiah Banda later was subjected to the removal of his immunity and prosecution under highly controversial charges, which were later dismissed in in full, restoring the family’s position in the country.
