§ Baroness Stern
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they have raised with the Government of Malawi the actions of the Malawi Parliament on 14 November in recommending that Judges Mwaungulu, Chimasula Phiri and Chipeta be removed from office. [HL1957]
§ Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
We and other international partners have raised this issue with the president and others in the Government of Malawi. We understand President Muluzi has decided Justice Chipeta has no case to answer and has referred the cases of the other two judges to the Judicial Service Commission.
