In the past few days a number of leading trade union officials and opposition leaders, including Musa Dlamini, trade union official, Mario Masuku, leading opposition politician, and Jan Sithole, leading trade unionist, have been arrested, detained and severely beaten as part of what appears to be a mounting campaign of harassment and intimidation against political opponents. Amnesty International is concerned for their safety and for that of other political activists in Swaziland.
