Maxwell and Musa case continue in Swaziland

Maxwell Dlamini and Musa Ngubeni with their lawyer

The case against student leaders Maxwell Dlamini and Musa Ngubeni continued today at Sigodvweni Police Station in Matsapha, Swaziland.  “Today the case progressed with two state witnesses giving evidence. After submissions from witnesses and a cross examination by the defense, the case has been postponed to the 28th of September,” the Foundation for Socio-Economic Justice Informations Officer, Mbali Dlamini, said in a press statement today.

Maxwell Dlamini and Musa Ngubeni were abducted and tortured by Swazi security forces during the so-called April 12 Uprising in April 2011, and were later charged with possession of explosives. They were both released on bail in February, amongst other things as a result of the international Free Maxwell Dlamini campaign calling for his release.
