South Africa's top appeals court says the authorities have a duty to investigate allegations of torture in neighbouring Zimbabwe. The court ruling could spell trouble for 17 Zimbabwean officials accused of torture, should they seek to travel to South Africa. South African prosecutors had refused to investigate the allegations, citing political concerns. Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe had previously asked the ruling African National Congress to block any investigation. RFI spoke to Nicole Fritz the leader of one of the groups who filed the case.
