Frances Lovemore, director of the Counselling Services Unit (CSU) in Harare, and Abel Chikomo from the Zimbabwe Human Rights NGO Forum, talk about the police raid at the CSU offices and the arrest of 3 employees. Lovemore said they provide a non-partisan service to victims of political violence and torture, but on Monday the riot squad surrounded their building. Chikomo said civil society groups felt it necessary to issue a strong, collective statement, condemning the police because their actions have a lasting effect which determines how the general population behaves during elections.
