Zim Groups Protest Cops' Bail for Murder

Youth groups criticise the release of six policemen accused of beating a mineworker to death

Zimbabwean youth groups are condemning the release on US$50 bail for each of six policemen accused of beating a mineworker to death.

The Zimbabwe Youth Forum says that their release shows bias in courts, considering a youth leader and 28 alleged accomplices in the prime minister’s party have remained in jail awaiting trial for nearly a year on allegations of murdering a policeman.

The organisation further states that even police commanders acknowledged a breakdown of discipline led to the mineworker’s death and injuries to 11 others during a theft investigation last month.
