MMPZ update on the arrest of its officers
The Media Monitoring Project Zimbabwe
December 07, 2011
MMPZ staffers were brought before Gwanda magistrate Mr Douglas Zvenyika.
Mr Kossam Ncube appeared on behalf of accused persons whilst the
prosecution was represented by Blessing Gundani. After hearing arguments
by both counsel judgment was reserved until Friday morning when
the magistrate will deliver his ruling on the bail application.
The state opposed bail on the grounds that:
- Accused persons
were likely to interfere with witnesses;
- Fadzai and
Moly are still of a young and impressionable age and therefore
likely to flee given the publicity the matter has generated in
and outside Zimbabwe and the gravity of the offense they are facing;
- The case
is of a sensitive nature;
are still ongoing and Gwanda police is yet to collect DVD exhibits
and the equipment used in the production of the DVDs;
