Resident Doctors Association of Zambia and Others v Attorney-General (SCZ Judgment No. 12 of 2003)  ZMSC 31 (27 October 2003)
This petition was an appeal against the decision of the High Court which held that the petitioners breached Section 6 (7) of the Public Order Act (the Act). Section 6(7) of the POA prohibits the holding of public meetings, processions or demonstrations, where the police notify the conveners that they cannot adequately police such events. The petitioners argued that the High Court erred since the prohibition to hold the demonstrations violated their freedoms of expression, assembly and association, as guaranteed by articles 20 and 21 of the Constitution.
