Tinashe Sambiri|The European Union(EU) is deeply worried about the persecution of perceived government opponents in Zimbabwe.
The EU is also disturbed by the safety of political prisoners given the pathetic condition of the country’s holding cells.
According to the EU, the pre-trial detentions of perceived government opponents are questionable.
“The current pre-trial detentions, delays of proceedings & bail denials without serious charges are questionable, especially in times of #COVID19.
The infection risk in jail is high due to overcrowding & lack of hygiene. We know this because we support prisons through,” EU said in a statement.
