Zimbabwe: A trail of violence after the ballot

By AI International Secretariat, , Index number: AFR 46/014/2008

Amnesty International has documented unlawful killings, torture and other ill-treatment, as well as intimidation of mainly Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) supporters and human rights defenders in Zimbabwe following elections on 29 March 2008. Amnesty International is concerned about the failure or unwillingness of the Zimbabwean police to investigate human rights abuses or arrest suspected perpetrators. The report ends with specific recommendations to the government of Zimbabwe and the international community which Amnesty International believes, if implemented fully, will contribute significantly in addressing the organisation’s human rights concerns.
