member set free
Residents Association (CHRA)
June 11, 2007
Peter Bokosi was yesterday
set free by a Harare Magistrates after a successful application
by the defence for refusal of further remand.
The magistrate said the
State had failed to prove its case against Bokosi and others, granted
bail in April. It will have to proceed by way of summons if they
are needed in court.
Other pro-democracy activists,
in detention since March, have been released in the last few days
owing to the crumbling of the State case. Some of them including
journalists Luke Tamborinyoka were released on Friday after the
State failed to set trial dates.
However the case of Raymond
Bake, CHRA's Ward 34 Coordinator failed to take off after
the prosecutor asked for more time to go through the court papers.
The matter will be heard today in Court 6.
