High Court gives nod for Bushiris extradition process

High Court Judge Fiona Mwale has given a go-ahead to the Director of Public prosecution (DPP) Steven Kayuni to discontinue a case on application of review of Shepherd and Mary Bushiri’s unconditional release.

Last week the DPP requested the court to withdraw a review application following the formal extradition request for the Bushiris by the South African government.

Lawyer representing the Bushiris Wapona Kita told the court on Tuesday that they have no objection to the state’s request.

This made Judge Mwale to rule that the case be discontinued as both parties have agreed.

Speaking to YFM, Kayuni, said the court’s ruling means that the state can start processing the extradition of the Bushiris.
