Mozambique Drops Appeal for Former Finance Minister’s extradition

Mozambique’s Attorney General have withdrawn appeals to have the country’s former finance minister sent home from South Africa, where he is in custody over a $2 billion debt scandal.

Both the U.S. and Mozambique want South Africa to extradite Manuel Chang to face charges related to financial crimes.

Chang has been in custody in Johannesburg for more than a year since his arrest on U.S. charges.

South African Justice Minister, Ronald Lamola had put Chang’s extradition to Mozambique on hold in July after learning that he would have immunity from prosecution there

Mozambique Attorney General’s office have instructed its lawyers to withdraw the two pending requests in South African courts, in order to give the minister of justice an opportunity to re-examine the case, based on new developments. The Mozambican government hoped the move would allow Lamola to send Chang home.
