Senior Resident Magistrate James Mankhwazi has set 16th September as a day he will deliver his ruling on Chinese national Susu's bail application.
Susu, who is accused of exploiting Malawian Children at Njewa in Lilongwe through video clips he was shooting for a profit, re-applied for bail on Friday.
He has been on remand at Maula Prison since his arrest on 16 July, 2022.
According to the State, they want Susu to continue being detained, citing he is a flight risk.
Principal State Advocate in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, Mathews Gamadzi, has told Timveni Online that the State also wants Susu to be in prison for his own safety.
But Andy Kaonga, lawyer representing Susu, has accused the State of being unjust towards Susu, saying they cannot continue keeping him in custody without officially charging him.
