The state has downplayed arguments by lawyers for Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary in the extradition trial at the Magistrate Court.
The case failed to continue yesterday in spite of the two appearing before Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa following their application to have their heard as a constitutional referral.
