Posting Bail in Zimbabwe

Boy, what a struggle to post bond on this one.

Meanwhile, two foreign nationals accused of working as journalists without accreditation have been freed on bail.

New York Times correspondent Barry Bearak and a British national were released on bail of 300m Zimbabwe dollars (US$10,000 at the official exchange rate, US$6 on the black market).

They were ordered to surrender their passports and appear in court on Thursday.

Yea, 6 bucks is going to be really hard to scrape up. I guess that’s the downside of denying the reality of what you’re currency is worth!

An amusing anecdote from a situation rapidly turning very, very ugly.
