BUSHIRI CELEBRATES 'MILESTONE VICTORY' AFTER MALAWIAN COURT RULES IN HIS FAVOUR

BUSHIRI CELEBRATES 'MILESTONE VICTORY' AFTER MALAWIAN COURT RULES IN HIS FAVOUR 

The High Court in Malawi has ruled in favour of Enlightened Christian Gathering church leader Shepherd Bushiri.

The high court on Monday ruled that South African witnesses in the extradition case against him and his wife Mary must travel to Malawi to give evidence, overturning last year’s ruling that allowed witnesses to give evidence virtually before a South African court.

Bushiri and his wife had argued that the witnesses had to be physically in court in Malawi to testify in the extradition case.

Malawi received the formal extradition request for the Enlightened Christian Gathering church leader and his wife from the South African government on 5 December 2021.

The extradition request was submitted in terms of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) protocol.

According to Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola, the Malawi’s Extradition Act clearly demonstrates in the First Schedule to that Act that South Africa was a designated country for purposes of extradition, and this was the reason why the Lilongwe Magistrate’s Court ruled in favour of the prosecution.
