RAPAPORT… The European Union’s (EU) Parliament called for the release of human rights campaigner Farai Maguwu in Zimbabwe. The Parliament also demanded that Zimbabwe demilitarize the Marange diamond fields and respect the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) “by observing human rights.”

Adding its voice to the diamond industry’s discussion of the Kimberley Process (KP), Parliament called for any new revisions “to take proper account of human rights principles.”

The governing body also noted in its resolution, which was adopted through a show of hands, that Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe “and his close supporters remain a continuing stumbling block in the process of political and economic reconstruction and reconciliation in Zimbabwe, plundering as they do its economic resources for their own benefit.”
