MORE POLICE TORTURE IN SWAZILAND

From Swazi Media Commentary Thu Jan 31 2013, 08:56:00

Ten Swaziland police officers threw a woman into a kombi, drove her to a forest and tortured her for six hours. One woman police officer kicked her in the private parts.

This is the latest in a string of torture cases involving the Swazi police.

The woman told local media in Swaziland she was in bed at 11pm when police arrived at her home demanding she tell them the whereabouts of her husband who was wanted on criminal charges.

'I explained to them that I did not know where he was and this seemed to irk them and they got violent,' the woman said.
