SADC News: SALC Condemns the Use of Solitary Confinement Against Swazi Lawyer, Thulani Maseko

The Southern Africa Litigation Centre (SALC) expresses its deepest concern at reports from Swaziland that Thulani Maseko, a prominent human rights lawyer convicted of contempt of court and serving a two-year prison sentence, was placed in solitary confinement for three weeks as punishment for a violation of the prison code.
SALC received information from one of Maseko’s legal representatives that the Big Bend correctional service authorities had moved Maseko into solitary confinement for a period of three weeks and removed all visitation privileges, including from his legal representatives, as a result of his continual writings from prison.   SADC News: SALC Condemns the Use of Solitary Confinement Against Swazi Lawyer, Thulani Maseko: The Southern Africa Litigation Centre Condemns the Use of Solitary Confinement Against Swazi Lawyer, Thulani Maseko
