Women Tortured By Police in Swaziland

Women in Swaziland suffer from torture and brutalization by the Royal Swaziland Police. One survivor of such abuse explains how her local police force, the Manzini Swazi police, attacked and attempted to suffocate her in order to extract information. The police force, currently confronting a multitude of lawsuits, has denied that it uses torture and intimidation. The Human Rights Association of Swaziland and the Swaziland Action Group Against Abuse have called for an end to these human rights violations.
