Dr Slaa was arrested a few days ago on allegations of treason. The news of his release comes within 24 hours of a group of lawyers representing him and three others filing a case against the Attorney General, the Chief of Police, the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Regional Police Commander of Mbeya, and the Officer in Charge of the Central Police Station in Mbeya for unlawfully detaining their clients contrary to legal procedures.
