Malawi former president Muluzi: Case should go to constitutional court

The lawyers told Judge Maclean Kamwambi that they feel the 11 year old case ashould  back to the Constitutional Court where it would be heard by a panel of three judges.

The case was initially in the Constitutional Court for years when it was referred to the High Court.

Muluzi’s legal team then argued that the case was politically motivated and the executive was influencing matters.

Judge Kamwambi said he wanted more time to read the application and make a ruling on whether to refer the case back to the Constitutional Court.

He has since adjourned the case to Thursday.

Muluzi is  accused of corruptly getting money from donors when he was head of state between 1994 and 2004.

He denies the charges.

And state prosecution witness have submitted that there is no evidence linking Muluzi’s money which was suspected to be from donors, to have been corruptly acquired.
