State Applies For Further Remand Of Civil Society Leaders Facing Subversion

The State has successfully applied for the postponement of the hearing date for civil society leaders who were arrested and charged with intentions to subvert a constitutional government.

The trial date has now been set for January 7, 2020.

In his application for postponement, prosecutor Mr Charles Muchemwa argued that investigations were still underway. The application reads in part:

We would have placed our house in order on the next remand date, if the State fails to provide the accused with a trial date after this long remand, they will be removed from remand.

Harare magistrate Mrs Learnmore Mapiye remanded the matter saying that the court was giving the State the last chance to furnish the accused with the new trial date.

The accused allegedly travelled to the Maldives, where they are said to have undergone a training workshop organised by a Serbian non-governmental organisation, the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), with the intent to subvert a constitutionally elected Government.
