High Court Deputy Registrar Anthony Kapaswiche has set Friday this week as a day he shall deliver his ruling on whether to dismiss Former President Peter Mutharika’s legal cost review application or not.
On Monday, lawyers representing HRDC, Magistrates association and Malawi Law Society filed an application requesting the Court to dismiss Mutharika and Former government Chief Secretary Lloyd Muhara’s costs review application.
According to the claimants, the defense delayed in furnishing them with evidence documents which is wrong as documents are supposed to be served 21 days before hearing.
Khumbo Soko lawyer representing the claimants said they want the court to dismiss Mutharika and Muhara’s application as hearing on the matter cannot come 12 days after they submitted documents.
But Charles Mhango lawyer representing Mutharika and Muhara has describes the dismissal application by the claimants as farfetched saying the best thing they could have done was just to request for more days to go through the documents.
