Zimbabweans protest killer cops' $50 bail

2012-04-15 21:00

Harare - Zimbabwean youth groups are condemning the release on $50 bail for each of six police officers accused of beating a mineworker to death.

The Zimbabwe Youth Forum said on Sunday that their release shows bias in courts, considering a youth leader and 28 alleged accomplices in the prime minister's party have remained in jail awaiting trial for nearly a year on allegations of murdering a policeman.

The forum said even police commanders acknowledged a breakdown of discipline led to the mineworker's death and injuries to 11 others during a theft investigation last month.

The forum described the police bail ruling on Thursday as another "shocking and glaring case" of skewed rulings by courts packed with loyalists of President Robert Mugabe.
