Zimbabwe: Update on Jestina Mukoko's abduction

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Zimbabwe, Breaking News, Freedom of Speech, Governance, Human Rights, Law

Denford Magora's Zimbabwe Blog posted some photos [1] of human rights activist Jestina Mukoko (who was abducted [2] a couple of weeks ago) appearing in court yesterday accused of recruiting insurgents to topple Mugabe. A few hours later he reported [1] that “although not being freed, it looks as though the abductees will be able to at least see their families and spend time with them, albeit in hospital”, and today that she had disappeared again because police didn't comply with the High Court order. Kubatana reproduces a statement [3] issued by Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) about the recent developments related to enforced disappearances.
