Malawi Court Says Bushiris’ Arrest Was Illegal, Call For Release

Lilongwe Magistrates Court in Malawi on Thursday ruled that the arrest of Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary, was illegal

South Africa, JOHANNESBURG – The Lilongwe Magistrates Court in Malawi on Thursday ruled that the arrest of Shepherd Bushiri and his wife, Mary, was illegal and ordered the pair be released from custody with no conditions.

According to local media, Magistrate Viva Nyimba made the ruling based solely on the legality of the couple’s arrest in that country and not their impending case in South Africa.

It has been days since the pair fled South Africa undetected in contravention of strict bail conditions.

They are facing fraud, corruption, and money laundering charges, but magistrate Nyimba said the couple’s corruption trial would only be considered once papers for their extradition were processed.
