Zimbabwe Rights Group Charges Crimes Against Humanity In Political Violence

The Zimbabwe NGO Human Rights Forum issued a report Monday charging that “crimes against humanity have been and are being committed” in the country in the post-election period.

The group said the Zimbabwe National Army's prominent role in post-election political violence with war veterans and militia of the ruling ZANU-PF party pointed to state complicity.

Attorney Otto Saki of the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rghts, a component of the NGO Human Rights Forum, told reporter Jonga Kandemiiri of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that violence has tapered off NGO humanitarian efforts continue to be obstructed.
