Britain keeping track of human rights situation in Zimbabwe


Britain, though no longer the colonial master of Zimbabwe, is keeping track of the human rights situation in the country Minister of State and Deputy Speaker in the House of Lords Baroness Anelay of St Johns said on Tuesday.

Responding to a question from Baroness Kennedy of Cradley on Britain’s most recent assessment of the human rights situation in Zimbabwe, Baroness Anelay of St Johns said: “We remain very concerned about the human rights situation in Zimbabwe.

“The Government continues to uphold its manifesto commitment to "stand up for human rights and the rule of law in Zimbabwe".

“We regularly urge the Government of Zimbabwe to honour its obligations; we monitor reports of human rights violations, including attending trials of activists; and invest in a wide range of programmes designed to improve access to justice and provide practical support for human rights defenders.”
