Mandela son-in-law won`t be extradited to US

A South African court has refused a US request that the son-in-law of former South African President Nelson Mandela be sent to Connecticut to face sexual assault charges.

Johannesburg: A South African court has
refused a US request that the son-in-law of former South
African President Nelson Mandela be sent to Connecticut to
face sexual assault charges.

Magistrate Tefo Myambo ruled in Isaac Amuah`s favour
at an extradition hearing today in Johannesburg, saying he was
convinced the accuser was alleging rape to try to get money.

Amuah, a former professor at Manchester Community
Technical College, left Connecticut 12 years ago while facing
the charges, which he denies.

Amuah is accused of sexually assaulting a 34-year-old
student inside his Connecticut apartment in 1993. He was given
permission to travel to South Africa while the case was
pending and never returned.

Amuah is married to Mandela`s oldest daughter,
Makaziwe.
