The state, in its application to have the acting president of Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association, Peter Magobeyi kept at Avenues Hospital, has argued that the doctor was unfit to travel.
The application comes after Magombeyi’s doctors and family have asked the release of the doctor for further medical attention in South Africa.
The State has been blocking his release despite the High Court giving Magombeyi the greenlight to go.
Paragraph 3.2 of the State’s “correction” application, reads:
The Respondent’s son underwent medical examination and the government doctors indicated that he is unfit to travel.
For observers, including law lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe, advocate Fadzayi Mahere, the state’s application is confirming reports suggesting that Magombeyi was tortured when he was missing.
Magombeyi disappeared in Budiriro on the 14th of September and was found disoriented on the 19th, about 35 kilometres from Harare.
