A Harare magistrate on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant for MDC Alliance MP Joana Mamombe after she failed to attend court for trial.
The Harare West MP is being jointly charged with other MDC-Alliance members, Cecelia Chimbiri and Netsai Marova on allegations of faking their abductions.
Their lawyer Alec Muchadehama told Harare magistrate Bianca Makwande that Mamombe failed to attend court, as she was admitted at a health centre in Harare.
Mamombe reportedly collapsed last Friday due to traumatic stress following her abduction, torture, arrest and imprisonment.
The three MDC-A activists were allegedly seized from policy custody by armed men on 13 May after a flash demonstration in Harare, tortured and sexually abused before they were dumped two days later.
They were re-arrested on accusations of faking the abductions.
