Partnership protests arrest of NCA protestors

Harare - Munich Partnership (HaMuPa)
October 23, 2003
Munich - It
was with great concern that we heard news of the arrest of hundreds
of Zimbabwe citizens on the 22nd October. These people were exercising
their democratic right of peaceful demonstration. (At least) 78
people have been charged under the draconian and undemocratic Public
Order Security Act (POSA). At least one person was also charged
who was not taking part in the demonstration.
We expect those
charged to be given access to lawyers, which was denied when they
were charged; and that if any of the arrested have been mishandled
that the perpetrators will be punished.
