Beatrice Mtetwa, the Zimbabwe lawyer currently acting to prevent the closure of the country's last independent newspaper, has allegedly been brutally attacked by police just days before her court hearing.
Mtetwa, who represented The Guardian reporter Andy Meldrum when he was illegally deported by the Mugabe regime, has been advising The Daily News, which was shut down a month ago by police.
A court hearing was due on 16 October, but on 12 October Mtetwa was allegedly beaten after she called the police for help following a carjacking.
Mtetwa is chairperson of the Zimbabwe Law Society Human Rights Committee and the senior partner of local firm Kanot & Immerman. The International Bar Association has contacted Khembo Mohadi, Zimbabwe's minister of home affairs, calling for an investigation into the attack.
