on arrested nurses
Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR)
February 07, 2007
who were arrested last Thursday 1 February 2007 were yesterday released
on free bail at the Harare Magistrates' Court following representations
made on Monday 5 February 2007 by their legal practitioner, ZLHR
member Charles Kwaramba.
nurses had been charged under sections of the Public
Order and Security Act (POSA) which had been repealed. Mr. Kwaramba
made an application for removal from remand based on the faulty
charges, but the Magistrate allowed the state representatives to
amend the charges. The nurses were subsequently charged under section
37(1) of the Criminal
Law Codification Act, allegedly for inciting their colleagues
from Parirenyatwa Hospital to join the ongoing strike action.
The nurses have
been remanded to 21 February 2007. Further updates on various cases
shall follow shortly.
