The European Union (EU) Parliament has demanded for the release of United Party for National Development (UPND) leader Hakainde Hichilema from prison.
The EU Parliament has also called for reform of the public order act, state broadcaster ZNBC, the electoral commission and an end to police brutality in Zambia.
The EU parliament has directed that the resolution be given to the UN, African Union, all EU representative and the Zambian government.
The EU parliament is also sending a team of investigators on the abuse of HH in prison and during his arrest at home. They are just one in a string of many international institutions that have condemned the current government and its treatment of opposition figures.
