Amnesty Demands the Release of Activists

Amnesty International demands Zimbabwean authorities release an activist

London-based human rights organisation, Amnesty International (AI), has demanded Zimbabwean authorities release an activist who exposed brutal abuses by security forces at a controversial diamond field in the east of the country.

AI Africa director, Erwin van der Borgt, describes, Farai Maguwu, as a ‘prisoner of conscience’ who is being persecuted for carrying out his lawful work of monitoring and documenting alleged human rights violations at Chiadzwa.

Van der Borgt called on the Harare authorities to release Maguwu, who has been in police custody for over a month on charges of issuing false information prejudicial to the security forces, immediately and unconditionally.
