International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) has a mandate "to contribute to the respect of all the rights defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. FIDH aims at obtaining effective improvements in the protection of victims, the prevention of Human Rights violations and the sanction of their perpetrators. Its priorities are set by the triennial World Congress and the International Board (22 members), with the support of the International Secretariat (30 staff members)." [1]

"FIDH and its member organisation ZimRights are gravely concerned by the flagrant disregard of fundamental rights and police brutality against detainees in Zimbabwe, including numerous leaders of opposition parties and civil society activists, who were arrested on Sunday 11 March whilst attempting to attend a Save Zimbabwe Campaign prayer meeting, which was to be held in Highfield, Harare at Zimbabwe Grounds."
