Bushiri’s extradition case back in court


High Court judge Redson Kapindu is expected to deliver a ruling on whether South African witnesses in the extradition case of Enlightened Christian Gathering Leader Shepherd Bushiri and wife Mary should testify virtually or physically.

In April last year, the State asked the High Court to review Lilongwe Chief Resident Magistrate Court’s ruling that the State should bring in South African witnesses in the preliminary inquiry in which it wants the Bushiris extradited to the Rainbow Nation to answer fraud and money laundering charges.

Chief Resident Magistrate Patrick Chirwa, in his ruling on an application filed by lawyer for the Bushiris, Wapona Kita, said the State could not rely on statements taken by other people in other places in the Bushiri extradition case.

But the State, through the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, moved the High Court to rule that extradition witnesses do not have to cross the borders into another country to testify.

The case is set for a ruling this morning.
