Editor's trial date set
MISA-Zimbabwe
September 04, 2007

The trial of Bright Chibvuri the editor of the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions' The Worker magazine charged with practicing journalism without accreditation under the repressive Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA) was on 29 August 2007 set for 25-26 September 2007.

Chibvuri who was arrested in Plumtree on 3 March 2007 spent two nights in police custody and was only released on 5 March 2007 when he appeared before a Plumtree magistrate on charges of contravening Section 83 of AIPPA which penalises the practice of journalism without accreditation.

At the time of his arrest, Chibvuri had already applied for accreditation but had not received a response from the MIC. He has since been duly accredited.
