The High Court went for a two-month-long vacation last Thursday, High Court and Supreme Court of Appeal Registrar Gladys Gondwe has confirmed.
This means services will be back to normal in early October this year.
The High Court normally goes on recess thrice a year to give judges a chance to write judgements. The development is likely going to affect proceedings in a number of cases.
However, Director of Public Prosecutions Steven Kayuni parried aside fears that the recess could derail ongoing court cases.
“This is normal because, when we are planning our things, we include a recess like this. So our processes are on course,” Kayuni said.
Last week, the Constitutional Court failed to hear a case in which Norman Chisale, security aide to former president Peter Mutharika, wants his property seizure case to be processed as a constitutional matter.
