UK Govt Statement On The Arrest Of Tendai Biti
Foreign and Commonwealth Office (UK)
Foreign Secretary statement on the arrest of Tendai Biti
"Either a credible charge should be made, and promptly, against MDC Secretary General Biti or he should be released immediately. Until then we can only assume his arrest is part of the pattern of ongoing harassment intended to disrupt lawful campaigning ahead of the election. Tendai Biti should be given immediate access to legal representation and bail. We and the rest of the international community are watching and we hold the Zimbabwe Government responsible for his physical safety."
