Tutu Leads Swazi Rights Reform Crusade

Tutu, human rights organisations, sign an open letter demanding reforms from Swaziland's King Mswati III, denouncing arbitrary arrests and prosecutions

Nobel peace laureate, Desmond Tutu, and a raft of human rights organisations have signed an open letter demanding reforms from Swaziland's King Mswati III, denouncing arbitrary arrests and prosecutions.

In a letter whose authenticity a Tutu spokesman confirmed, those involved say, "We write to express our concern about the state of freedom of expression, judicial independence, and the rule of law in the Kingdom of Swaziland."

The open letter also urges the government to begin meaningful discussions with the growing number of citizens and independent organisations that are demanding their basic freedoms and calling for democratic reform in Swaziland.
