Fugitive Malawian Prophet, Shepherd Bushiri, yesterday lost his bid to refer his extradition case to the Malawi Constitutional court.
Writing on Facebook, Bushiri said :
The magistrate court has today agreed with our lawyers that the Sadc extradition protocol is not part of the laws of malawi and therefore and there will not be used as the basis of the extradition proceedings.
The magistrate however, was of the view that since he has decided that the Sadc protocol on extradition will not be used in the extradition, he will only rely on the 1972 extradition agreement between malawi and South Africa.
Our lawyers have told the magistrate court that we will be applying for a review of the decision of the magistrate to proceed with the hearing of the extradition request based on the extradition agreement because the extradition request itself stated that the extradition agreement was being used subject to the protocol.
It is expected that the review process will be filed this week by our legal team in the high court.
Thank you all for always praying for us. It is not far, the truth will come out!
