Swaziland: Jailed lawyer in solitary confinement

A jailed Swazi human rights lawyer has been placed in solitary confinement, the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) said on Thursday.

“The LSSA is shocked and disturbed at reports that jailed Swazi human rights lawyer Thulani Maseko has been placed in solitary confinement at Big Bend Prison for a period of three weeks,” said co-chairmen Richard Scott and Busani Mabunda in a statement.

“The LSSA urges the South African government to intervene with the Swazi authorities and to join the legal profession in condemning this latest development.”
