The Court in Lilongwe has asked the state to bring in witnesses from Republic of South Africa to testify in the extradition case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary.
Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa made the ruling on Monday when the case resumed in absence of Bushiri and his wife who are mourning the passing of their daughter.
In his ruling, Chirwa said the country’s extradition law makes it mandatory for the court to takedown statements from witnesses and not rely on ones taken in foreign countries.
He also stressed that the process does not mean having a trial within another trial as it is to do with the extradition process only.
Dr. Steven Kayuni the Director of public Prosecutions stated that they would first consult the requesting country South Africa on the progress.
The case is expected to continue on 19 April to allow the family to mourn their fallen daughter Israella who passed away on Sunday.
