    New York, November 9, 2001—The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) welcomes the release of Geoff Nyarota, editor-in-chief of the Daily News, and Wilf Mbanga, the former chief executive officer of the Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe (ANZ), the paper's publisher.

    Nyarota and Mbanga were arrested on the morning of November 8 and taken to the headquarters of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Harare.

    After spending the night in jail, they appeared before a judge the next morning and were charged with fraud. They were released on bail of Z$10,000 (approximately US$187) and are due to appear in court again on November 28.

    The government claims that ANZ filed a false license application with the Zimbabwe Investment Center. On the application form, ANZ listed its former company name as "Motley Investment," a nonexistent entity.

    Sources at the Daily News, however, say this was a clerical error by the consulting house that filed the application on ANZ's behalf. The actual name of ANZ's precursor is "Motley Trading," a firm in which Nyarota and Mbanga were the major shareholders.

    Nyarota and Mbanga were also charged with contravening the terms of their license, which was allegedly for a weekly publication; the Daily News is published daily.

    This is only the latest instance of what CPJ believes is an orchestrated campaign against the independent paper that began early this year with the bombing of its printing presses and has gained intensity with the approach of presidential elections, scheduled for next year.

    This month, CPJ is honoring Nyarota with one of its four 2001 International Press Freedom Awards.

    On 11/9/01, an airliner inroute to the Dominican Republic, went down in the Rockaways, near Queens, NY, killing all aboard and destroying several homes in this residential community. The official FAA report concluded that this airliner got caught in the jetstream of the previous airliner that had departed the airport prior to it. Sounds fishy, but in the absense of real evidence, this is all we know...

    I think there was a plane accident. The plane crashed in Brooklyn, but "luckily" didn't hit the Yeshiva (where General Clark once gave a lecture to over-excited crowd. This is another example of fanatic religious people lust for killers).

    Some, who are still hiding, have convinced most people that some barefeet Afghans coordinated such attack!

    Still, there are a few who know this was organized by the few rulers to proceed in their plans of cutting more freedoms from the people , in the US and elsewhere, and parallel get more land and resources!
