Amnesty International (AI) has called on the Zimbabwean authorities to ‘urgently’ step up their search efforts for abducted journalist and pro-democracy activist Itai Dzamara and update the public on any progress so far, a month after his enforced disappearance.
A High Court judge last month ordered Zimbabwean police and state security agents to search for Itai Dzamara, including by advertising on radio and newspapers, and to give fortnightly updates to the Court.
AI’s regional director for Southern Africa, Deprose Muchena, argues that, "It is worrying that a month after Itai Dzamara's abduction, there seems to be no credible investigation in place. It is also worrying that police and state security agents have not been fully complying with the order to keep the High Court informed."
