Treasury Designates Twenty-Six Entities Tied to the Mugabe Regime

August 3, 2005

The U.S. Department of the Treasury today designated twenty-six Zimbabwean entities – 24 commercial farms and two businesses – controlled by key members of the Mugabe regime. This designation is pursuant to Executive Order 13288, which is aimed at blocking the property of persons undermining democratic processes in Zimbabwe.

"The Mugabe regime rules through politically motivated violence and intimidation and has triggered the collapse of the rule of law in Zimbabwe," said Robert Werner, Director of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). "By denying the Mugabe regime access to the U.S. financial system and U.S. persons, we're cutting off the flow of support they could use to further destabilize Zimbabwe."

About time. I recommend the article by Douglas Farah (below). This was probably a result of the arrest of the suspected London bomber (Haroon Rashid Aswat) who reportedly entered Zambia through Zimbabwe.

Good, I'm glad someone is taking a stand against that regime.

Hopefully this will be the start of more action on behalf of the West...

The problem is that he's already turned east, having decided Blair wants to re-colonise Zimbabwe (I'm not sure who thinks that makes sense), and is having nights out on the town with Hu Jintao. China using their new hard currency supplies to fill the gaps left by the west and get the influence that brings.

IOL: AU supports plan critical of Mugabe

January 05 2006

The African Commission on Human and People’s Rights, the human rights arm of the African Union (AU), has adopted an unprecedented resolution strongly condemning “continuing” human rights abuses by President Robert Mugabe’s government.

The harshly worded resolution was adopted after the commission’s 38th ordinary session in Banjul, Gambia, last month. It said the commission was “deeply concerned” about the “continuing human rights violations” in Zimbabwe.

However, it remains to be seen whether the resolution will have any impact on African leaders who have continually backed Mugabe despite his abysmal record.
