Office has asked the police to investigate lawyers who represented
Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai in a case
in which he challenged the outcome of the July

The newspaper quoted
Attorney-General Johannes Tomana as saying they have referred the
case to the police for investigation.
Tomana said he would be guided by the police investigations in making
a determination on whether or not to prosecute.

reach Mr. Tomana as his phone went unanswered.
MDC-T spokesman Douglas
Mwonzora said this is a part of a grand scheme to harass its members
and lawyers working with his party.
