Magudumana’s Application to Undo Arrest and Transportations

As previously reported, Magudumana and her boyfriend Thabo Bester were arrested in Arusha, Tanzania, and she subsequently filed an urgent application to have her arrest deemed wrongful and unlawful.

Her application seeks to have her “apprehension, arrest, and abduction” in Tanzania, her transportation to South Africa, and her subsequent local arrest undone.

He highlighted the distinction between deportation and extradition, claiming that Magudumana’s deportation was a disguised extradition involving collusion between South African and Tanzanian authorities.

Katz argued that Magudumana did not consent to her deportation, which goes against international laws requiring her to be informed of her rights and asked for her consent.

Katz further contended that officials from the South African Police Service and Home Affairs disregarded protocols in bringing Magudumana back to South Africa to face charges related to Bester’s escape from the Mangaung Correctional Centre.

He asserted that the facts support the argument that her return was an extradition rather than a deportation.
