On 16 January 2014 a transgender activist was arrested in Bulawayo after entering a female toilet. At the police station she was forced to strip and examined by medical doctors to verify her gender. After spending two nights in a holding cell, she was charged with criminal nuisance. The criminal charge was later withdrawn. The civil trial on unlawful arrest and malicious prosecution took place from 25 to 27 July 2017. SALC and the Sexual Rights Centre is providing support in this case.
