Police shield regime thugs over Chasowa murder......

Police shield regime thugs over Chasowa murder – reports | Malawi news, Malawi - NyasaTimes "After a post-mortem report by local pathologist Dr Charles Dzamalala revealed that Robert Chasowa – the fourth year mechanical engineering Polytechnic student found dead on the campus on September 24 – did not commit suicide as claimed by police, blogger Mabvuto Jobani (Jobani is a pseudo) has written a report on Media Institute of Southern Africa (Misa) Malawi discussion forum that says law enforces know regime thugs who had a hand in the murder   but are failing to arrest them.

The report said the agents of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) were responsible for Chasowa’s murder, citing two undisclosed Blantyre police officers who gave two theories as to why the student activist was murdered.

The first theory according to the police source, is that Chasowa refused to listen to their demands to stop publishing and circulating a newsletter which criticised  President Bingu wa Mutharika administration."

Court frees boy prisoner

The Namibian Newspaper : "THE High Court yesterday ordered the immediate release of a 12-year-old boy who became Namibia's youngest sentenced prison inmate after receiving a six-month jail term for housebreaking and theft at Karasburg in October. In a review judgement handed down by Judge Elton Hoff, Acting Judge Claus Hinrichsen set aside the boy's conviction and sentence and ordered his immediate release from detention. Judge Hoff agreed with Acting Judge Hinrichsen's decision, which was based on the principle that a child as young as the boy is presumed not to be criminally liable, especially where he had been involved in a crime while under the influence and instructions of a much older person. The boy was sentenced to six months' imprisonment on October 19, after he had been convicted in the Karasburg Magistrate's Court on a charge of housebreaking with intent to steal and theft."
