Regional socio-political and economic grouping Sadc has buckled under pressure from President Robert Mugabe's government to come up with a tribunal based on a new protocol.

A draft protocol on the tribunal would be tabled before the Sadc heads of state and government summit to kick off in Victoria Falls this week.

Teodiso Uate, Sadc's head of the legal affairs unit said that the rulings made by the suspended tribunal would also come under review.

Uate said it was common knowledge now that member-states suspended the Sadc Tribunal which was established by a protocol has been crafted and it would be put to the council of ministers as well as the Summit for ratification.
