​Govt Warned on Rapists and Murderers

Rights groups caution Zimbabwe against pardoning those who killed and raped in the name of politics

Rights non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have cautioned Zimbabwe against pardoning those who have killed and raped in the name of politics.
 
The NGOs say this in recommendations drawn under their umbrella National Transitional Justice Working Group (NTJWG), a convergence of 48 NGOs selected to play watchdog to government efforts to restore peace.
 
“While acknowledging the role of amnesties in persuading perpetrators to cooperate, these must not apply to perpetrators of international crimes, crimes against humanity, murders and sexually related crimes,” argues the NTJWG.
