Zimbabwe Court Rules That State Must Provide Reasonable Accomodations for Persons with Disabilities in Court Proceedings

Zimbabwe High Court rules that the State must make reasonable accommodations for persons who are deaf and mute in criminal proceedings to ensure that their rights to a fair trial are respected.

This is a welcome development in the protection and promotion of rights of persons with disabilities in Zimbabwe.

This also speaks to the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Fantastic, this should go beyond Zimabwe
