A Chinese National Lu Ke, also known as SuSu, who responsible for demeaning videos involving Malawian children, was deported to Malawi by the Zambian government on Saturday, July 16.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on July 17, the fugitive fled Malawi after the publication of a BBC report on the dehumanizing videos that he produced by tricking Malawian children in Lilongwe and Mchinji districts for profit.
The Malawi Government through its cooperation with the governments of China and Zambia established that the fugitive had fled to Zambia through uncharted routes.
He was later apprehended and fined accordingly by the Government of Zambia for illegal entry.
The Government of Malawi, through the Ministries of Homeland Security, Justice and Foreign Affairs, made an extradition request to the Zambian Government for the fugitive.
The statement further highlights that after completing the extradition request made by the Government of Malawi, the Zambian Government handed over the fugitive at Mchinji border on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Lu Ke is expected to appear in court where he will be charged for contravening various laws of Malawi which the Director of Public Prosecutions will outline soon.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has further commended the Government of Zambia for the assistance rendered in this matter and also commended the Chinese Government for their cooperation and sharing information.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has urged members of the public to be vigilant and ensure that the rights of children are not abused in any way, shape or form.
