The following is Roy Nyabvure’s letter to Police
“We are astonished that you have confirmed that you want to arrest a state witnesses at the instance of associates of acused persons over our client’s testimony in matters which are pending in the Anti- Corruption Courts at the Magistrates Courts.
It is our belief that your actions are a brozen interference with a State Witness which requires investigations by an independent arm at the Police such as PACU/ the Anti- Corruption Commission ZACC. Accordingly we shall be advising our client to make a report to those agencies. Because of your association with associates of the acused person in the matters in which our client is giving testimony, he is not comfortable and does not feel comfortable to attend before you.
We note that your letters says you are inviting our client so that you arrest him. This means that you have already concluded that he has committed an offense. Arrest or threatening with an arrest who is on the stand who is on the stand for his testimony is an offense of abstraction or defeating the course of justice.”
