The Lilongwe Senior Resident Magistrate Court will on 16 September rule on whether or not to grant bail to Chinese national Lu Ke, popularly known as Susu.
In his recent court appearance before Senior Resident Magistrate James Mankhwazi, Susu made a second request for bail after he was rebuffed earlier soon after his arrest.
The state insists that the nature of the charges levelled against him could put his life in danger if released from detention.
But the accused’s lawyer, Andy Kaonga has accused the state of being unjust towards Susu saying they can’t be keeping him in custody without officially charging him.
Susu is charged with 5 counts bordering on child trafficking and since his earlier bail denial.
He is accused of exploiting Malawian Children at Njewa in Lilongwe through video clips he was shooting for monetary gain.
He has been at Maula Prison since July 16, 2022.
