Johannesburg - Extradition requests from the US and Mozambique for the latter's former finance minister Manuel Chang will be dealt with separately in a South African court.
Chang appeared in the Kempton Park Magistrate's Court on Thursday where his application to have the two requests heard separately was turned down.
Chang's advocate, Willie Vermeunen, had argued that both extradition requests should be heard at the same time.
"Both should be dealt with their own merits," Vermeunen said.
However, State prosecutor JJ Du Toit argued differently saying the two cases should be separated.
