Former Mozambican finmin's lawyers to challenge his detention in South Africa

JOHANNESBURG, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Lawyers for Mozambique’s former finance minister Manuel Chang will challenge the lawfulness of Chang’s detention in South Africa, they said in a Johannesburg court on Tuesday.

Chang, who was detained in South Africa last week over his alleged involvement in a fraud involving $2 billion in loans to state-owned companies in Mozambique, denies wrongdoing. (Reporting by Emma Rumney Writing by Alexander Winning Editing by Catherine Evans)
