HC Deb 14 March 1889 vol 333 cc1636-7

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies under what warrant, and issued by whom, is Dinuzulu now being detained in custody at Etshowe; and whether Dinuzulu was removed from Natal to Etshowe under a warrant, the validity of which is under appeal?


Dinuzulu was removed to the borders of Natal under a warrant which the Supreme Court of that Colony had held to be valid, but the validity of which is now under appeal. On Dinuzulu reaching the borders of Natal, he was handed over to the Zululand Police, who doubtless were armed with a proper warrant from the Zululand authorities to enable the police to receive him. He is no doubt detained in custody under a proper warrant from those authorities, but the Secretary of State is not aware by what magistrates or other persons these warrants were issued.
