DEPUTY CHIEF WRITER
©️ ZIMBABWE Lawyers for Human Rights (ZLHR) executive director Roselyn Hanzi has petitioned police commissioner general Godwin Matanga to investigate the circumstances surrounding the leaking of pictures of a female MDC official, who was part of the three who were recently allegedly abducted and tortured.
She said she had confirmed with her clients that the photographs which were taken by Philip were the same images which were circulating on social media.
“We are also instructed to remind you, as we hereby do, that Zimbabwe is a State party to several human rights instructions that enjoin the government to ensure everyone, including victims of crimes, are afforded equal protection of the law, have their right to privacy and right to dignity,” she said.
“Further be advised that we will be taking legal action against all those responsible in their individual capacities for damages,” she said.
Police were yet to respond to the demand at the time of going to print last night.
