MUTARE - Roy Bennett has been remanded in custody until 4th March.

Charges have been read out and the defence complaints read that 
Bennett is being  illegally detained. The magistrate has ruled  that
there is enough evidence on the first charge of banditry but
insufficient on the 2nd.  He does not therefore have the authority to
grant bail as it is a third schedule  offence and has ruled that Roy be
held in custody until the 4th March. The defence will have to appeal to
the high court for bail.
