Crimes Against Humanity Zimbabwe (CAHZ) - Rules of Evidence
Before a case comes to trial, be it a minor speeding offence or an
accusation of murder, the outcome depends almost entirely on the quality
and quantity of evidence. It is one thing to accuse a person of speeding,
but unless the police can produce camera data in court, the case is
likely to be dismissed.
CAHZ is currently gathering evidence from
victims in Zimbabwe and from those in exile around the world.
We are also
who have documented some of the abuse and we act
as a back-up repository for those organisations where they can
of their dossiers.
Sometimes evidence has been gathered, but with one
or two key details missing, in which case we try to contact the
in order to
turn their statement into a court-ready affidavit.
