AFR4658962017ENGLISH

Human Rights Council adopts Universal Periodic Review outcome on Zimbabwe. Harmonising domestic laws with international human rights treaties to which Zimbabwe is a party and the 2013 Constitution, as recommended during the review, would guarantee individuals in Zimbabwe the enjoyment of civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights. Regrettably, four years on this process is not complete, leaving the authorities, in particular the police, enforcing old laws in contravention of the Constitution
