Breaking News: Pastor Evans First #ThisFlag 85 Activists Denied Justice

ACTIVIST-169x300The trial of the 85 human rights activists arrested in last month in July after the first #ShutDown led by now exiled Pastor Mawarire has failed to take off again. The Bulawayo-based human Rights Lawyer has given the following statement;

The trial failed to start because the state said it was not ready and is still waiting for an order from the prosecutor general to tell them how to proceed. Defense argued that the state should proceed by way of summons when they were ready, as some of the accused were unemployed and some were from as far as Nkayi and Gwanda and they did not have the finances to come to court again and again without any progress in the case.The case continues on the 2nd of September(Friday) to allow the state to respond
