Our attention has been drawn to several online reports that claim that the Senate has halted the extradition of Senator Buruji Kashamu. That report is not correct.
Please note that the Senate, following the report of the Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, only resolved that “The courts be allowed to handle the various aspects of the case before them without any interference.”
This explanation is simple, clear, and straight-forward.
Any other interpretation or conjecture made by any news media, as some online platforms have suggested, is simply mischief.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Information & Public Affairs
