Bail judgment for the 26 postpone sine die

Harare, 05 December 2012.

Today, High court judge, Justice Chinembiri Bhunu postponed the bail ruling for the 26 MDC members indefinitely.
The defense council had applied bail for the 26 on Friday based on changed circumstances. The high court closed normal business for recess/holiday on Friday, which means the trial will proceed next year. Today Justice Bhunu called for a special court session to hear the state’s side on the bail application, and as usually state prosecutor Edmore Nyazamba challenged the application.
Bhunu said he need time to assess the arguments submitted. After his assessment he will call for another special session for his ruling.
We are expecting that the 26 will be granted bail since their co-accused were given based on the same circumstances.
It remains our position that the innocent 26 are unlawfully detained and deserve their absolute freedom so that they can be with us, their beloved family and friends especially this festive season.

Together to end,building a youth with a difference.
