Malawi's top judge to preside over adoption appeal

Madonna's ongoing bid to adopt a Malawian girl will be heard by the country's chief justice when the case goes to court next week.
The pop superstar is appealing a High Court judge's 3 April ruling, which rejected her request for the interim adoption of three-year-old Mercy James.
The case will be heard by a panel in the capital city of Lilongwe on Monday - and Malawi's top judge, Chief Justice Lovemore Munlo, has taken it upon himself to preside over the 'important' hearing, reports
High Court and Supreme Court of Appeal spokesman Joseph Chigona says, 'Since this involves an infant it will be heard in chambers. This is an important case; that's why the chief justice himself has taken special interest.'
Madonna, who is recovering after falling off a horse in New York earlier this month, is not required to attend the hearing.
