JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – A South African court on Friday set aside a decision to extradite Mozambique’s former finance minister Manuel Chang to his home country, Sami Modiba, a lawyer representing Mozambique in the case said.

Chang, whose extradition has been requested by both the United States and Mozambique, has been in custody in South Africa since December. He denies wrongdoing.
