A group of Zimbabwean political rights activists say they were brutalised and tortured by police following their arrest last week on treason charges. The group had been discussing the uprising that led to the fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Back to the article
Your article on the activists being tortured is just on of multiple incidents in Zimbabwe. I want to refer to today's FOCUS programme on TV where you indicated that the Global Political Agreement between
Tsvangarai and Mugabe was due to end in February. This is inaccurate, there is no end date. The agreement should end after a referendum on the new constitution and a new election. Also you referred to sanctions. This is not the correct term as it is misleading. There are restrictions against individuals who commit acts of torture and repression against innocent people.
We are grateful for your coverage and hope that you will verify the hints we are getting that Gadaffi may be about to fly to Zimbabwe. Also, are our troops in Libya?? We will not be surprised.
