Student leader finally released; Badly tortured (10-08-07)

National Univesity of Science and Technology (NUST) students union president, Clever Bere appeared today before the magistrates courts and has been further remanded to the 3rd of September on bail. Clever was on Monday 6 August 2007 arrested in the city of Bulawayo, d

ragged on handcuffs all the way to Bulawayo Central Police Station and detained for unclear charges. A lawyer from Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights effectively pressured the police to take Clever before the courts otherwise demanded his release since he had been deained for more than 48 hours.

Charges on Clever’s arrest were unclear and highly political. He was verbally accused of being aligned to the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) the main opposition party in Zimbabwe that has exposed the ruthless yet fruitless regime of Robert Mugabe. The torture that Clever went through is clearly politically manifested, ZINASU condemns in the strongest terms, political bushworkers masquerading as police officers.
