London, April 12 (ANI): Pop diva Madonna is scheduled to appear in a Malawian court this month for a final hearing on whether she can adopt a child from the southern African country.

According to a court clerk, the case is “tentatively” scheduled for 22 to 25 April.

The court clerk also said that the singers lawyers had requested those dates and the judge in the case would make a decision when he returns from vacation this week.

Malawi’s government recommended earlier this month that its High Court approve Madonna’s adoption of David Banda, the child she met in a Malawian orphanage a year and a half ago.

Madonna began adoption proceedings in 2006 and the little tot has been living with the pop star and her film director husband Guy Ritchie in their London home since then.

The adoption hearing was scheduled to take place in Malawi this week.

However, Madonnas lawyers asked for it to be delayed until the end of the month because she had another engagement in the US. (ANI)
