THE Ndola Magistrate’s Court has rejected an application to vary bail conditions for the five women who allegedly indecently assaulted another woman using a bottle on suspicion that she was flirting with a married man.
The women are still in custody after failing to meet the bail requirements.
When the matter came up yesterday for hearing of the application in chambers, Ndola Chief Resident Magistrate John Mbuzi dismissed it stating that he could not vary the bail conditions because it was made before his own court.
He, however, advised the defence team to apply in the High Court if they were not satisfied with his decision.
