The Philippines: Justice for Anthony, justice for all

August 3, 2019

I’ve known Andrea Trinidad for a long time now, since her days as a reporter. We’ve become good friends. We call everyone in our barkada “kapatid.”

Hailing from Negros, she’s soft-spoken, confident, unassuming, and eager to serve. For instance, when she and one of her daughters faced blood-related disorders, she went beyond getting relief for themselves. Andrea helped form and lead a national advocacy group for hemophilia.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, could’ve given Andrea an inkling that she and her family would lose a brother to the unremitting bloodshed in the island they call home.

No one is safe from the Negros killing spree. Not even a respected family of professionals and public servants such as the Trinidads.

Shock and disbelief are written all over the statement of the Trinidad family, which Andrea posted on Facebook.

Zimbabwe: Sikhala sues police for $3 million

August 2, 2019

MDC vice-chairman Job Sikhala, who was allegedly abducted from Harare Central Police Station after his arrest on charges of subverting a constitutionally-elected government, is now suing the police for acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally.

Sikhala, through his lawyers Koto and Company, has initiated a $3 million lawsuit against Home Affairs minister Cain Mathema, Police Commissioner-General
Godwin Matanga and Superintendent Daniel Joseph of Harare Law and Order section.

“We write to you at the instance of our client (Sikhala) hereby providing you with notice of intention to institute legal proceedings against yourself, within
60 days from date of this letter as defined in terms of section 5 of the State Liabilities Act,” Sikhala’s lawyers wrote.

The lawyers said after Prosecutor-General Kumbirai Hodzi had granted his consent to have Sikhala appear before a Harare court, the police abducted him and
locked his lawyers in police cells, thereby blocking them access to him.

“Despite the consent having been obtained, the police officers, including Superintendent Daniel Joseph, locked the team of lawyers who were in the company of our client, Tendai Biti and Innocent Gonese, inside cells of Harare Central (Police Station) and refused to give them access to our client, when Joseph dragged
and smuggled our client out of Harare Central Police Station,” the lawyers said.

Sikhala alleged in his letter that he suffered insults, dehumanising treatment and a sense of shock from the actions of the police while he was blindfolded and
suffering unbearable pain.
