Groups Fear Zim Pre-Election Crackdown

Rights groups voice fears that the Zimbabwean authorities would launch a crackdown on rights activists ahead of a referendum and elections scheduled early next year

Rights groups have voiced fears that the Zimbabwean authorities would launch a crackdown on rights activists ahead of a referendum and elections scheduled early next year.
 
The Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders says that the ‘situation of human rights defenders in Zimbabwe remains grim as their operating space can be further shrunk" in the run-up to polls’.
 
The organisation, which launched a report after a fact-finding mission to that country, notes that rights activists still face intimidation, harassment and torture in the troubled nation.
