Secretary General of the Swaziland Youth Congress and former President of the Swaziland National Union of Students, Maxwell Dlamini, has been detained, tortured, and forced by Swaziland’s regime to sign a confession that says he was in possession of explosives during the April 12 Swazi Uprising - a movement inspired by similar uprisings in North Africa and The Middle East.
Maxwell Dlamini has since been released on bail due to international pressure from this campaign and others, but was arrested again on charges of sedition for allegedly organising a peaceful rally on April 23 2013. He has since been released on bail again on July 5 2013.
We – The Free Maxwell Dlamini Campaign, together with the people and organisations that support the campaign – demand that the charges against Maxwell Dlamini, and his fellow accused Musa Ngubeni, are dropped unconditionally and that any and all wrongdoings committed by Swaziland’s police forces and security forces towards Maxwell Dlamini and other members of Swaziland’s democratic movement are investigated, and that any perpetrators are brought before a court of law.
