Opposition figure ordered released

June 09, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Zimbabwe's High Court ordered police to release an opposition member of parliament who was arrested Saturday for the second time in a week amid mounting tensions before this month's presidential runoff.

Eric Matinenga was initially arrested June 1 on charges of inciting public violence. He had been released Thursday after charges were dropped.

The opposition says President Robert Mugabe's government is trying to sabotage Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai's campaign.
