The suspended Prosecutor General Johannes Tomana who was arrested this Friday, was released Friday night.

Tomana was released after the police recorded a warned and cautioned statement at the Harare Central Police Station.

According to Tomana's defence counsel Mr Tazorora Musarurwa, the police are finalising their investigations and Tomana will be charged on the 20th of July on the day he will be back in court for the trial of the initial matter in which he is facing charges of abuse of office.
Following recommendations by The Judicial Service Commission, a commission of inquiry was set up.

Members of the tribunal were sworn in by President Robert Mugabe on Thursday this week to investigate Tomana on his ability to continue holding office of the prosecutor general.
This was after the Constitutional Court ordered him to issue a certificate of private prosecution in the case of Bikita West legislator Munyaradzi Kereke.

The case was denied prosecution due to lack of incriminating evidence by the National Prosecuting Authority.
