Reporters Without Borders welcomes the news that The Standard reporter Nqobani Ndlovu, who was arrested in the southwestern city of Bulawayo on 17 November after writing an article questioning police recruiting, was finally released on 26 November.

The judge in charge of the case ruled on 22 November that he could be freed, but the police appealed against her decision, asking for his detention to be extended for another seven days under section 121 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act.

Reporters Without Borders hails judge Nicholas Mathonsi's 26 November decision to reject the appeal and free Ndlovu.
