6 white Zimbabwe officers held innocent of sabotage

Six white Zimbabwe Air Force officers Wednesday were acquitted of charges that they were involved in sabotage staged by South African commandos, but they were immediately redetained under government emergency powers. A high court judge dismissed confessions obtained by police, on grounds they had resulted from torture.

The officers had pleaded not guilty to complicity with three unidentified raiders in the sabotage of 13 planes in July 1982.
