HC Deb 18 May 2004 vol 421 cc875-6W
Mr. Rosindell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on human rights abuses committed by the Government of Zimbabwe. [173411]

Mr. Mullin

The Government of Zimbabwe continues to commit serious human rights abuses. It has repeatedly harassed, intimidated and attacked the opposition, independent media and wider civil society. We and the rest of the international community have made our condemnation clear. With our partners we are helping to provide help for those who have suffered and support to human rights lawyers and others working to end these abuses.
