Coltart sues gvt for unlawful arrest.

by BustopTV

HUMAN rights lawyer Douglas Coltart will sue the police for assaulting and detaining him during a protest by teachers last year. Coltart was severely beaten up by police officers during a protest organised by the Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe in August last year. Artuz members were picketing Finance minister Mthuli Ncube’s offices over poor salaries when the police officers pounced on them and Coltart. The Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) has since written to Home Affairs minister Kazembe Kazembe and the police notifying them of Coltart’s impending lawsuit. – The Standard
