The trial started yesterday with the riot police firing teargas at the MDC supporters and relatives who were outside the High Court waiting to enter the court for the hearing.
Today, armed riot police blocked anyone from entering Court A.
Even attempts by the defence lawyers to intervene on the grounds that the police moves were illegal as the trial was taking place in an open court, failed to persuade the law enforcement agents to reverse the action.
The accused have been in remand prison for over a year since their arrest last year in May on false charges of murdering a police officer in Glen View, Harare.
