MDC-T Youth Assembly chairman Solomon Madzore had his passport returned by the High court on Friday, to enable him to travel to Europe.
Lawyer Gift Mtisi told SW Radio Africa that their application to have Madzore’s passport released by the registrar of the High Court was granted by a High Court Judge. Madzore is set to travel to Europe on party business soon after the referendum on 16th March.
However Mtisi said this was a temporary arrangement as Madzore would return the passport to the High court on 25th March.
‘Madzore will be travelling between the 16th and 24th of this month and as soon as he is back he will hand over the passport to the registrar of the High court,’ Mtisi. The youth leader, who is one of 29 MDC-T members facing charges of murdering a police officer in 2011, is out of custody on police bail.
The trial, which was supposed to resume on Friday after a one and half week break, was postponed to Monday. Mtisi explained that the state prosecutor told them that their last witness to testify will only be available on Monday.
The state’s last witness is Cuban pathologist, Dr Alveiro Aguero who carried out the post-mortem on the late Inspector Petros Mutedza.
