This report draws attention to the ongoing difficulties victims of torture face in Zimbabwe, given the impunity which perpetrators enjoy. It is an update of a report produced by REDRESS in 2003 as part of a survey of law and practice in 31 selected states. This report focuses on the many legal and institutional obstacles and problems which continue to face local, regional and international organisations and individuals, as well as governments, concerned about torture in Zimbabwe and the need for justice and reparations for its victims. Torture has been practiced in Zimbabwe for decades, both before and since independence in 1980, and remains an ever-present reality in Zimbabwe, as does the culture of impunity for perpetrators.
