Zambia: forcible exile to suppress dissent

Those perceived as opposing government policy have been subject to investigations of their citizenship, as well as stated or implied threats of deportation. This reflects a broader strategy of the Zambian authorities to abuse the law to intimidate journalists, non-governmental organizations and others from non-violent activities in civil society.
