New twist in Bushiri case

The High Court in Lilongwe has ordered for the physical presence of witnesses in an extradition case involving Prophet Shepherd Bushiri and his wife Mary.
Bushiri had alleged that there have been assasination attempts after the two opened cases against some individuals in South Africa.
On his controversial return to Malawi, Bushiri said he was being maltreated by systems in South Africa.
He has since described the ruling as fair and that he looks forward to meeting the witnesses in court where they will exercise their right to cross examine them for a fair ruling.
Celebrating the High Court ruling, Bushiri posted on his Facebook page:
“The High Court in Malawi has ruled that witnesses, to be specific, those that arrested us and recorded cases against us be physically present in Malawi for cross examination by our lawyers.

When we came to Malawi, we spoke about how unfairly we were being treated in South Africa. We had opened cases of extortion against some of the prosecutors who arrested us a year before the same accused officers arrested us.

We also survived assassination attempts after we opened cases against some individuals in the Republic of South Africa and they have records of these cases in the Police and Judicial systems which we believe to be vital in our case.

We welcome this fair ruling and we look forward to meeting them in court where we will exercise our right to cross examine them for a fair trial. Thank you everyone for your continued support. We will continue to pray for you as you pray.”
