Muluzi: Case has dragged for 11 years

When the case resumed hearing on Wednesday morning, the state lawyers were busy scrutinising documents from banks in relation to loans Muluzi took from commercial and investment banks.

Judge Maclean Kamwambi said he would make a ruling on whether the case should be transferred to the Constitutional Court or remain at the High Court later.

Defense lawyers, led by Tamando Chokotho applied to the High Court to transfter the case, arguiing it is a highly politically case which should be heard before a panel of three judges at the Constitutional Court.

The case has been dragging for seven yeara now.

This is the second time the defense lawyers had applied that the case be shifted to the Constitutional Court, the first time the Chief Justice Andrew Nyirenda rejected the application.
