The High Court in Zomba has ruled that the hearing of bail application for murder suspect Masozi Chamthunya, a businessman suspected of killing his girl friend in 2010, should be heard on April 30.
The hearing was deferred on Thursday after the state observed that documents filed by the defense counsel for the bail application bore different signatures.
State lawyer Pilirani Masanjala noted that the documents sent to the state and the court had different signatures and asked Judge Redson Kapindu to rule on whether the bail application case could continue in view of the technical errors.
Masanjala said the defense was supposed to present identical documents to both the court and the state.
Judge Redson Kapindu then said he had to look at the technical application by the state.
