Extradited Chinese filmmaker charged by Malawi court

A Chinese national extradited from Zambia has appeared in court in Malawi on Monday, and been charged with five counts of child trafficking.

Lu Ke was a Malawi resident when he was exposed by BBC Africa Eye,which reported he had used local children to film personalised greetings videos, some of which included racist content.

The videos could be bought for up to $70 (£55) on Chinese social media and internet platforms. Mr Ke has denied making derogatory videos.

On Monday, the judge denied him bail because of concern for his safety as well as fear that he was a flight risk. He had fled to neighbouring Zambia last month after the BBC documentary was broadcast. 

Mr Ke did not have legal representation.
