By A Correspondent| Journalist, Hopewell Chin’ono will appeal against Harare Magistrate Magistrate Marehwanazvo Gofa’s decision to deny him bail on the grounds that he has a propensity to commit offenses.
Chin’ono’s lawyer Doug Coltart said they disagree with the ruling and will approach the High Court.
“Hopewell Chin’ono has been denied bail (again) on the basis that he “has a propensity to commit offenses”. We disagree with the ruling & are filing an appeal to the High Court. He does not have any previous convictions. Our Constitution guarantees the presumption of innocence,” said Coltart.
