HARARE – Lawyers today staged a peaceful demonstration at the High Court in Harare against the continuing disregard of laws and human rights in the country.
The state has embarked on an unprecedented violation of fundamental human rights including the freedom of assembly, expression and the media where anyone who dares to speak out against the government has been victimised using state apparatus.
Lawyers, journalists and political activists have been the main target lately with the prominent journalist Hopewell Chin’ono one of the many that have been arrested on flimsy charges of inciting public violence.
The lawyers were demanding respect for the Constitution.
