Legal minds are emphasizing that there are several procedures to be met if the warrant of arrest for former President Joyce Banda is to have merit across the borders.

The Police yesterday issued the arrest warrant for Banda, following investigations by the fiscal and fraud section of the Malawi Police.

The investigations are based on suspicions that Banda was involved in the massive plundering of taxpayers’ money at Capitol Hill.

The Cashgate scandal was unearthed during her regime, in which over MK20 Billion was embezzled by both public officers and crooked business people.

Speaking to Capital FM, Executive Director of Justice Link Justin Dzonzi disclosed that due to the fact that Banda is outside the country, the process of arresting her will not be easy.

According to Dzonzi, for police to arrest her where she is, police in the country would have to first issue an international warrant of arrest.

This would be used to then arrest her in that particular country and then extradition would begin.

Also commenting on the matter Edge Kanyongolo who is Associate Professor at Chancellor College, said that the law allows Banda to either surrender herself to police or wait for them to find her instead.

Banda’s Spokesperson Andekuche Chanthunya disclosed that they have not yet received the warrant.

News of the issuance of the arrest warrant has attracted national and international attention.

He however added that Banda will make herself present once she’s received the warrant.

Malawi police revealed that they will engage Interpol on the issue but did not mention when exactly that will be.
