Madonna New York, April 2 (IANS) Madonna’s African lawyer says the pop diva’s latest adoption plans will go through as planned.
Attorney Alan Chinula insists he’s anything but worried as Friday’s hearing deadline approaches. He is confident that she will get a green light form the officials to adopt the Malawi girl.

“I don’t see any law in Malawi that can stop this adoption,” he said.

The pop superstar has spent the past week in Malawi, revisiting adopted son David’s village and making plans to adopt a four-year-old girl, called Mercy James, reports

Chinula claims the orphaned girl’s mother died shortly after childbirth and her uncle has already signed the relevant paperwork.

“He has already signed off the consent forms, and Madonna counter-signed them. She just has to wait to hear from me when I get the result,” Chinula told

Madonna is not required to attend Friday’s hearing.

Many human rights groups are opposing Madonna’s latest adoption plans, insisting the little girl should be left in Malawi.
