BRUSSELS: Reports of attack on activist by Zimbabwean security officials

Amnesty International UK Communications Director Richard Bunting said:

'Amnesty International has documented a frightening pattern of violence by the Zimbabwean Government against its critics in recent years.'

'The Belgian authorities should establish whether today's events are a further sinister twist to an already deeply worrying trend of attacks on those that criticize the Government of Zimbabwe.'

Amnesty International remains extremely concerned at Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe's outspoken attacks on the judiciary, the Zimbabwean opposition, the white community, the free press and members of the gay and lesbian community.
