Three Counselling Services Unit (CSU) representatives were today, 7 November 2012 transferred from Harare Central Police Station to Bulawayo where the police claim the offence which they intend to charge them for was committed.
The three, Fidelis Mudimu, Zachariah Godi, Tafadzwa Gesa, were arrested on the 5th of November 2012 together with Penn Bruno, James Zidzimu and Daily News photo-journalist Watson Ofumeli who were released on the day of arrest.
The arrested are being represented by Dr. Tarisai Mutangi, Tonderai Bhatasara, Rose Hanzi, Kennedy Masiye and Jeremiah Bamu from Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) who, according to reports from ZLHR have been advised that the CSU employees allegedly defaced a bill board and an information centre in Bulawayo.
The transfer to Bulawayo without formal charges having been preferred against the arrested brings the time that the 3 have been detained to over 48 hours. A situation which is afoul of the law, which stipulates that the police must have either released or charged the detainees and brought them to court by 4 p.m. today, 48 hours after their arrest.
