EU Presidency Statement on Zimbabwe

The Presidency of the EU is very concerned about the arrest of Tendai Biti, Secretary General of the MDC in Zimbabwe and the third detention of Morgan Tsvangirai within a few weeks.

The Presidency welcomes the call for an end to violence and intimidation in Zimbabwe ahead of the elections on June 27 2008 by the Prominent African civil society leaders issued on 13 June.

The Presidency condemns the campaign of violence, harassment and intimidation taking place in Zimbabwe and urges the Government of Zimbabwe to ensure its cessation in order to establish a peaceful, free and fair environment that would enable Zimbabweans to express their fundamental democratic right to vote.
