September 23, 2010
"Zimbabwe's government has dropped charges against six health workers accused of dispersing AIDS/HIV drugs without appropriate documentation," CNN reports (9/23). The health workers' lawyer Jonathan Samkange said, "The Attorney General's office has decided not to prosecute them. The police were just being overzealous in arresting them in the first place," according to Reuters (9/22). Samkange also "told VOA [News] that the physicians intend to seek a license that will allow them to operate in the country without further difficulties" (9/22).
