ZHRC Slam 'Violent' Police Crackdown

Zimbabwe's ZHRC accuses the police of brutality and violating the rights of protesters

Zimbabwe's Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) has accused the police of brutality and violating the rights of protesters when clamping down on anti-government demonstrations in the last two months.

Political tension is rising in the southern African nation, where public anger at the dire state of the economy, in particular an 80 percent jobless rate, cash shortages and delays in salaries for public workers, has spilled onto the streets.

In its first statement on the protests the commission says its investigations have revealed ‘unbecoming and violent conduct’ by police officers and urges victims to make formal complaints.
