EU reminds Swaziland’s government of Cotonou provisions

As Swaziland’s government has suppressed trade unionism in the country by repeatedly meddling in union activities, the EU expresses concerns. Through a press statement by the EU Delegation, based in Lesotho, and  in conformity with the EU Heads of Mission accredited to the country, calls upon the government to stop these actions and recalls the existing Cotonou Agreement as its provisions stand for respecting human rights.
In words of the press statement: “These events, coming after similar interventions by the authorities over the past months, set a disturbing trend of restricting citizens’ rights guaranteed by the Constitution."
According to the Journal Times of Swaziland, the government recently deregistered the Trade Union Congress of Swaziland (TUCOSWA) only a month after its creation arguing that the Act governing industrial relations did not have a provision for its existence.
