Eswatini: Further information: MPs’ flawed conviction must be overturned: Mthandeni Dube and Mduduzi Bacede Mabuza

On 1 June, Members of Parliament, Mthandeni Dube and Mduduzi Bacede Mabuza – who have been held for almost two years in arbitrary detention – were found guilty of terrorism, sedition and murder. The two were arrested on 25 July 2021 and are facing over 20 years in jail for representing their constituencies and calling for political and human rights reforms in the country. While in detention, they have been beaten and denied access to their lawyer and medical care. Amnesty International urges the Eswatini authorities to quash their flawed conviction and immediately and unconditionally release the 2 MPs.
