WHY WE RAIDED MDC OFFICES : COPS

Cops say they raided the MDC offices because they were searching for offensive weapons meant for criminal use.

“Police are enforcing a search warrant issued by the court in terms of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act, in connection with the suspicion of possession of articles for criminal use as defined in Section 40 of the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act (Chapter 9.23) with regards to the maintenance of law and order,” he said.

By last night, he said no arrests had been made and the officers were still on the ground. Asst Comm Nyathi said whoever was alleging that the police intended to plant machetes should bring evidence to that effect.
