High Court Relaxes Chin’ono’s Bail Conditions

High Court judge Justice Tawanda Chitapi on Tuesday relaxed freelance journalist and filmmaker Hopewell Chin’ono’s bail conditions following an application by his lawyers, the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR).

Chin’ono is facing charges of incitement to public violence, obstructing the course of justice and publishing falsehoods prejudicial to the State.

He was initially arrested and granted bail last September and was ordered to pay $20 00 for his release.

Chin’ono was arrested again on 3 November and 10 January and given the same bail conditions that applied to his other alleged offences. Justice Chitapi ruled:

… Chin’ono shall report at Highlands Police Station once fortnightly on Fridays between 0600hrs and 1800hrs. Chin’ono shall make an additional deposit of $10 000 to the $10 000 ordered in case number B1359/20.
