Rights Commission condemns beating of Chilufya Tayali


THE Human Rights Commission (HRC) has condemned the harassment of Economic and Equity Party (EEP) president Chilufya Tayali by suspected United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres at the Lusaka Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
Commission spokesperson Mweelwa Muleya said in a statement yesterday that the roughing up of Mr Tayali within the court premises is deeply regrettable.
He said the incident should be condemned as an act of lawlessness which should not be allowed in a democratic country like Zambia.
“We salute the Zambia Police Service for their alertness and quick protection of Mr Tayali from further punishment by guaranteeing him his right to personal security,” Mr Muleya said.
