Zambia’s forced deportation of Tendai Biti is a serious violation of international refugee law-UNHCR

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) says it is gravely concerned about reports of the forced return of Zimbabwean opposition politician and asylum-seeker Tendai Biti.

Mr Biti expressed the intention to seek asylum in Zambia at the border yesterday.

The UNHCR says the Zambian government handed over Mr Biti to his country of origin today despite a court order to the contrary.

“Refoulement or forcibly returning refugees and asylum-seekers to their country of origin is a serious violation of international refugee law,” a statement from the UNHCR said.

The UNHCR has since called on Zambia to investigate the incident urgently.

However, earlier today, Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya said that Government had not abrogated the asylum laws by handing back Zimbabwe’s Movement Democratic Change Alliance (MDC), opposition co-leader Tendai Biti.

Ms. Siliya said that the action was within the law because Mr. Biti did not qualify for the asylum conditions.

Ms. Siliya, who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister, added that a person can only seek asylum if the country of origin is under massive violence and total breakdown of law and order, which was not in the case with Mr. Biti.

Ms. Siliya noted that the lives of citizens in Zimbabwe were not threatened and government concluded that it also applied to Mr. Biti, hence he did not qualify to be granted asylum in Zambia.

“The Zimbabwean MDC leader presented himself to the Zambian Authorities at Chirundu boarder post seeking asylum and was held at the boarder following consultations with government after the conclusions of the consultations particularly with Ministry of Home affairs it was deduced that he did not qualify for asylum” she said.

Ms. Siliya added that Mr. Biti has been handed back to the Zimbabwean authorities and NOT deported because he was NOT in Zambia illegally but he had been denied entry into the country and was being held at the boarder pending consultations.

“On the matter that he managed to get a court order against his handing back, he has been handed back to the Zimbabwean authorities I want to confirm that consultations in the office of Attorney General show that he had already been handed back to his Zimbabwean authorities when his court order was apparently granted “, she said.

Ms. Siliya was reacting to various stakeholders who have condemned the Zambian government for denying Mr. Biti asylum.

This was after the MDC co-leader was in the country to seek asylum after the Zimbabwean authorities were pursuing Mr. Biti on allegations of inciting violent protests in Harare during the just ended elections.

    • True! What can one expect from the PF Govt that doesn’t follow laws and proper processes? This is what we have been saying – lack of constitutionalism in Zambia. This a clear example cos Zambia is now even breaking international conventions willy nilly. Promoting lawlessness in our country – shameful.

    • Opposition are in the habit of sacrificing other peoples lives and then run away from the country. THAT ONE also did the same . Besides this biti was recently saying that Zambia is a failed state. What has changed today. Why run to a failed state. After causing yhr death of 6 lives and he wants to runaway fro the what he started. Only under5s can support him. Again if biti was granted asylum the under5s would’ve been complaining still.

    • Tendai Biti has only himself to blame for his poor judgment and poor choice of a country for seeking asylum. He couldn’t think of other countries? There’s Mozambique, South Africa, Botswana and Namibia, surely one of these three countries would have been a better option for you….not what you chose. What a costly mistake you made Tendai !!

You are just as dull as your leaders (like Dora and co) everything has to be around silly petty partisan issues..so what if he said Zambia is a sh*thole. Do you know what international refugee law? Do you know what a court order is? If you didn’t want him you should have let him go to RSA or any country of his choosing.
      Next week dont be surprised to see that lazy thing reading a speech about welfare of refugees at the DRC/Zambia border that how disconnected these leaders are.

    • He broke the law in Zimbabwe and he has to face the consequences. His caused death and destruction in his country but his own life is not in danger … he just has to be answerable for his actions.

      The smart people of the Zambian Enterprise are not going to be accomplices to his violent acts and acquiesce. The Zimbabweans are trying very hard to put their lives back together after years of Uncle Bob’s tyranny.

      Their country is on a peaceful trajectory and Biti doesn’t qualify as an instigator of illegal activities in a peaceful environment of law and order.

      The UNHCR is simply asking GRZ to investigate and once this whole is looked into from all angles, UNHCR will conclude this government did the right thing much to the chagrin of Gay Gay here.

Surely how can govt investigate something that has already happened I mean Biti has already been handed back to junta against a court order and in violation of international refugee laws….when I call you an educated fooooooool you take offence yet you view issues with tinted glasses.

    • Sekuro Biti is the one person who saved Zimbabwe from total economic collapse. Had he at the time he served as finance minister during the short lived coalition govt not fully dollarized the economy that country wouldve completely fallen apart from a bad situation to the worst situation imaginable. What we must understand is Zimbabwe is our sister nation we are one people, let’s forget about borders there are no 2 countries in Africa more close than Zim and Zambia and we need to respect this by not selling each other for two pennies of silver. This is a sad day.

    • 2020vision – PF empty tins are not concerned with that …their issues with Biti is that he came to Zambia last year to show solidarity with Hakainde after he was arrested on those embarrassing trumped up treason charges. Biti was scathing in his criticism of Lazy Lungu, accusing him of behaving like then-President Mugabe by targeting Hakainde. So, its not simple to put one and two together as these thieves are so petty they forget that one day they will be in similar position.

      In a few days UNHCR will issue a clarification on this matter and it will be in GRZ’s favor much like the British High Commissioner did a few weeks ago … what are you going to say then???

      There is no rule of law in Zambia. And how some one can expect it to be there is utter nonsense when even Chakolwa lungu himself is the number one culprit for direspecting the rule of law

    • So, according to Dora, the court order came AFTER Biti had already been handed over to the Zimbabwean authorities? Really? Can some investigative journalists please look into this? This is an extremely serious issue, if it’s found to be untrue. The blatant disregard for the rule of law and disrespect for our judiciary should not be tolerated in Zambia. Not even clueless Lungu and his gang should be allowed to be acting outside the rule of law. Someone needs to be charged with contempt of court, if it’s proven that Biti was still on Zambian soil when the court order was delivered. Secondly, the asylum conditions Dora narrated seem to be exaggerated. Nonetheless, if you were not satisfied with his claims, why didn’t you give him an opportunity to choose another country in which he…

THIS IS QUITE COMMON IN AFRICAN POLITICS. BUT TO LIST ZIMBABWE AMONG THE WAR-TORN COUNTRIES WITH RESIDENTS SCAMPERING AROUND AS REFUGEES IS STRETCHING THE MATTER TOO FAR. TENDAI PROBABLY WANTED TO DENT THE IMAGE OF HIS COUNTRY BY CREATING A SCENARIO WHERE HE IS CONSIDERED AS A REFUGEE RUNNING AWAY FROM MNAGAGWA’S TERROR.

We have just seen Zambian President Edgar C Lungu defying a court order in deporting Zimbabwe opposition MDC Alliance principal Tendai Biti. The truth is this was not surprising given how Lungu himself treats the opposition in Zambia. Zambia shall be saved.

    • The low IQ, low libido Gay Gay at it without fully understanding all the details pertaining to asylum law. He’s really a laughable useless clown, this cretin ~ his own words.

      Here are the facts for you little dimwit. Did Biti break the law in his own country? The answer is “Yes” and there are pending inquiries and investigations for his arrest.

      Did Biti’s actions cause injuries to others? The answer is “Yes” and people’s lives and properties were lost. At that point he becomes a fugitive not a refugee.

      Court order obtained after denial of entry and returned back to Zimbabwean authorities is an academic exercise. The Attorney General of the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise is way smarter than Gay Gay and understands International Law better than jacks of all trades like this…

    • Chisenga, on point. BR, mukwai mwalasa bakalamba!! How can the UNHCR ignore the fact that Biti broke the law??? This is very low by their standards. That was the only violence during the whole process of elections as all, opposition included, campained freely without violence. Until Biti irresponsibly incited MDC supporters to cause mayhem and sadly people got killed. Various observers roundly labelled the elections free and fair, although some hiccups were there, but it was a big improvement from the Mugabe elections and there is a lot of room for improvement. There is no lawlessness in Zimbabwe so Biti must account for his actions.

    • JUNIOR – Do you even know what law he broke? Mr Biti’s arrest warrant, as seen by the BBC, states that he “unlawfully” announced that Mr Chamisa had won the election. Mind you there is a reason why that word unlawfully is highlighted as this is an election that was marred by “mammoth theft and fraud”. . ..the fact of the matter is our High Court ruled on Wednesday night that Mr Biti should not be deported until a “judicial review” of the govt’s decision to reject his asylum application so why ignore a court order and go ahead and deport him anyway on Thursday at first light at 06:00 hrs? You have no respect for court rulings yet you are here trying to justify a wrong by our govt. And I have not even touched International Refugee and asylum laws.

      This B R Mumba thing, to think this guy thinks of himself as being smarter than the folks in government that he supports is scary and it is no wonder this country finds itself at the bottom of human development and progress. Sometimes you have to think beyond your petty political interests and condemn what is clearly wrong.

      You keep saying Tendai Biti “broke the law” and yet no court on earth has found him guilty. Mate the decent thing to say is that he is suspected to have broken the law.

      I think Jay Jay has eloquently and articulated his arguments very well. 2 points really: 1) Zambia is a signatory to UNHCR conventions on refugees, asylum seekers and human rights; 2) Zambia needs to obey its own laws. On both fronts Zambia failed lamentably, i.e. they failed to obey both…

People the world over have been pursued as individuals in genuine fear of brutality or death for their views or from paranoid regimes. It’s abundantly clear that we have a government of officials devoid of international processes or human values. How do you even deal with an asylum claim in such record time – even when it went to court?
    Granting of asylum or consideration of the same is not reliant on whether there is a war or genocide. Individuals from ‘seemingly’ stable nations are pursued everyday in a manner that instills genuine fear of persecution, torture or even…

  24. The real players in this issue is the Chinese. They are running the show between two countries. Leaders must be good to account. Did Biti said it was okay to terrorise democracy. From what l can hear from comments he was not condoning his Excellency President Lungu but asking him to stop terrorising fellow Zambian. There were more than 300 people from Zimbabwean side who initially stopped his arrest at the border before he came into Zambia. Biti asked people to pull down poster but he did not give the order for 6 people to be shot. Solders could have fired in the air and disperse the public and arrest those who burn property. I give you an example a small town with registered voters of 29000 Zanu recorded votes of 35500. A quite polling station had 150 000 at the last hour of voting 200…
