The ongoing trial for Glenview 29 accused of murdering police Inspector Petros Mutedza in May last year continued on Monday the 18th of June 2012 with the sixth state witness Assistant Inspector Spencer Nyararai continuing with his testimony against the Glenview 29.Last week six out of twenty state witnesses testified with no one of them giving a substantive account of what transpired on the day Inspector Petros Mutedza was murdered.
The defense council comprising of senior Human rights lawyers Beatrice Mtetwa, Selby Hwacha, Aleck Muchadehama, Charles Kwaramba, Gift Mtisi and Jeremiah Bhamu submitted fresh Bail application before Justice Bhunu on Tuesday the 12th of June. They are still waiting for the ruling as the trial progresses. On countless occasions the 29 have been denied bail at the High Court, an indication of clear absence of justice, freedom and rule of law.
Court will resume on Tuesday the 19th of June 2012 at 1100hrs with Justice Bhunu expected to deliver his bail ruling. Justice Bhunu is said to have promised to polish up his bail ruling in the afternoon and on the strength of that indication, the defence agreed for court not to continue Monday afternoon to allow him the time he needs to prepare his ruling.
