Zimbabwe’s chief prosecutor has been charged with obstructing the course of justice after allegedly dropping charges against people accused of plotting to bomb the president’s dairy.
The milk production plant is run by President Robert Mugabe’s wife, Grace.
Attorney General Johannes Tomana denies the charges. He was brought to court in a police van on Tuesday morning.
Four army officers also appeared at Harare Magistrates Court charged with treason.
The prosecutor told the court that the four army officers were allegedly caught with firearms and sought to get bombs designed to blow up the dairy, reports the BBC’s Brian Hungwe from the capital, Harare.
Our correspondent adds that the court was told the four had formed a political party called Zimbabwe People Front and had set up a military training camp.
Mr Tomana is accused of dropping charges against two of the four army officers.
