RUA almost ready for Constitutional Court
With the financial support of the motoring community, the Road Users Association (RUA) has moved forward in its commitment to challenge the bullying and corruption on Zimbabwe’s roads.
A comprehensive application has been drafted by David Coltart of Webb, Low and Barry, for bringing the matter to the Constitutional Court, contesting that actions of the police are in contravention of five provisions of Zimbabwe’s Constitution. In addition, a Chamber application has been prepared for leave to directly approach the Constitutional Court without the matter first being heard in the lower courts.
The applications are currently with an Advocate in Harare for his opinion. We anticipate receiving this shortly and expect that our next update will be to inform the motoring community that the matter has been brought to the Constitutional Court. The goal is to achieve this before the end of the year. (Mr Coltart can be contacted on: firstname.lastname@example.org should any person have any queries about the nature of the case, the need for evidence, and issues concerning funds required to institute the proposed court proceedings).
Why support the road users association with funding?
Your donations received to date have covered the legal costs for preparation of the thoroughly researched Substantive and Chamber applications. Funding is now required for the Advocate’s opinion and then to present the matter to the Constitutional Court.
Your funding will enable WL&B, through Counsel, to achieve a positive outcome in the highest court in the land. With funding support, RUA will ensure justice for:
Every motorist who has been “over-charged” by having fines imposed above the Schedule of Deposit Fines, as evidenced by the abundance of traffic “fine” information captured on RUA’s Google Docs facility goo.gl/bKOeNR
Motorists have lost their hard-earned cash at bogus “roadblocks” through the opportunity created by ZRP’s habit of no longer carrying identification.
For the motorist who DID indicate change of direction, who DID stop at the stop street, who DID NOT touch the solid white line or DID NOT go through on amber. Only to be told “It’s my word against yours …”
ZRP have usurped the authority of the Legislature (Parliament) and the Judiciary. In other words, police are making the law, and enforcing it.
