Two members of a Zimbabwe gay organization were arrested Friday and appeared likely to be brought to court Monday, according to their defense attorney.

The Associated Press reports that attorney David Hofisi has been denied access to his clients since their arrest last week.

"Ellen Chadehama, 34, and Ingatius Mhambi, 38, are employees of the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) organization. They were arrested on allegations under Zimbabwe's censorship laws.

"Police raided the offices of their gay and HIV/Aids awareness group searching for indecent materials, and removed documents and computer files," reports the AP.
