ZPP bemoans govt failure to ratify International Convention of all Persons against Enforced Disappearance
On August 30 the world commemorated the UN International Day of the victims of enforced disappearances.
In Zimbabwe Paul Chizuze and Itai Dzamara since February 2012 and March 2015 are still unaccounted for and it seems the government is not moved by this state of affairs.
"The Zimbabwean government has still not ratified the International Convention of all Persons against Enforced Disappearances and with the 2018 elections on the horizon and the many conflicts within and across political parties there is a risk more citizens could meet this fate," said ZPP.
ZPP said the monitors compile reports that are handed over to ZPP Coordinators who man the different ZPP regional offices in the ten administrative provinces of Zimbabwe.
Upon receipt and verification of the reports from the monitors, the Coordinators compile provincial monthly monitoring reports, which are then consolidated at the national office into the ZPP Monthly Monitoring Report.
This report contains some of the violations recorded by ZPP, the organisation has a data base with the rest of the injustices and gladly shares it with interested stakeholders.
