Police Release Chin'ono's Equipment

Police Release Chin'ono's Equipment

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has finally released the broadcast equipment they seized from prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono’s Harare home in 2020.

Police arrested Chin’ono in July 2020 on charges of incitement to commit public violence through posting tweets denouncing alleged looting and corruption by well-connected political elites and their cronies.

Chin’ono confirmed via his Facebook page that the CID Law and Order department released his equipment on Tuesday afternoon. He wrote:

The regime has finally released my Panasonic P2 broadcast camera, Avid video edit suite, Laptop and cell phones.

The equipment was seized on 20 July 2020 after I was arrested and jailed for exposing State corruption and the looting of public funds!

I got the equipment 30 minutes ago from the CID Law and Order department!

Chin’ono, through his lawyers Mtetwa and Nyambirai Legal Practitioners wrote several times to the ZRP, asking for his equipment to be released.

The lawyers wrote to the police on 1 October 2020 and 16 December 2020 requesting the release of Chin’ono’s equipment.

After High Court Judge Justice Siyabona Musithu acquitted Chin’ono on charges of incitement to commit public violence, the lawyers wrote to the police yet again.

The letter, dated  8 December 2021, was addressed to Detective Chief Inspector Morga Chafa, the Officer in Charge Law & Order Section, ZRP, Harare Central.

I THANK THE POLICE FOR DOING WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE LONG AGO WHEN CHIN'ONO WAS ACQUITTED.

THE LAW REQUIRES THAT WHEN AN ACCUSED HAS BEEN ACQUITTED, HIS/HER PROPERTY IS RETURNED TO HIM/ HER.

IN CHIN'ONO'S CASE, I SUSPECT THAT PROSECUTORS WERE DEBATING POSSIBILITIES OF LODGING AN APPEAL.

LET ME ADVISE CAMARADA CHIN'ONO FOR NO PAYMENT. HE SHOULD NOT JUST TAKE THAT EQUIPMENT AND START USING IT. HE SHOULD TAKE IT TO EXPERTS WHO WILL CHECK IT FOR FALSE FITTINGS !!!!!

[ DO NOT PAY ME CAMARADA CHIN'ONO. THIS IS FREE ADVICE ]

YOURS SINCERELY
