Police intimidation in Swaziland

The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions has written a letter to Prime Minister in Swaziland strongly condemning the systematic interference by police in lawful and legitimate trade union activities.

The Trade Union Congress of Swaziland (TUCOSWA) organised a mass meeting scheduled to take place on 26 February 2015 at the Bosco Skills Centre Hall in Manzini in order to address questions related to the registration of trade unions, the loss of trade benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act, the recognition of trade unions for collective bargaining purposes and other democratic rights. However, police intimidated the landlord of the Bosco Skills Centre Hall on 24 February 2015 indicating that he could not rent out the hall to TUCOSWA without the permission of the police. Police also reminded him that he had to follow the law of the land without stating which laws he would have violated by renting the space to TUCOSWA.
