Media Monitors Freed

Fadzai December, Molly Chimhanda and Gilbert Mabusa are facing trial for insulting or undermining the authority of President Robert Mugabe but made a constitutional application to the Supreme Court arguing the charges they are facing infringe on their rights .
The Constitutional Court is yet to make a ruling and the state will now proceed by way of summons.
Ncube had argued that having his clients on remand would infringe n his client’s freedom as Supreme Court cases take long to be heard.
The trio is accused of insulting or undermining the authority of President Robert Mugabe as the DVDs carry a message which says, “The President of the Republic of Zimbabwe Robert Gabriel Mugabe is a wanted person for murder of various people including political violence and that the state media was biased and supportive of ZANU PF.”
The charges stem from a civic education meeting the three facilitated in November 24 last year and spent twelve days behind bars after the state invoked Section 121 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act to deny them bail.
