The Law Society of Namibia (LSN), as a self-regulating body created in terms of the Legal Practitioners’ Act (1995), which serves the Namibian public and legal profession by promoting justice, protecting the independence of the judiciary and upholding the Rule of Law, expresses its solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe and our courageous colleagues throughout the Zimbabwean legal profession in these turbulent times.
The LSN fully supports the position of the Law Society of Zimbabwe as published in the following statement:
“The Law Society of Zimbabwe has taken note of the current developments in the country. It particularly notes the assurances of peace and calm given by those behind the recent events. The Law Society of Zimbabwe also takes heart at the assurance that Constitutional order will be respected and restored. The Law Society of Zimbabwe is committed to justice and the rule of law. We are thus encouraged by the undertaking not to interfere with the independence of the judiciary. We hope that in everything to follow the constitution will be respected and due process will be observed for all actions to be taken. We further call for a quick return to Constitutional order.
We call upon fellow citizens to respect peace individual rights and in particular property rights and individual security.”
