Report Launch: Socio-economic impact of pre-trial detention in Zambia

This report seeks to show that the deprivation of liberty by the state in the attempt to maintain “law and order” has a clear and measureable socio-economic impact on individuals and their dependents which is frequently disproportionate. States which seek to maximise development should minimise the conditions under which deprivation of liberty is lawful, and seek to reduce the total number of instances of deprivation of liberty, as well as their duration. The excessive use, frequently for minor offences and for extended periods, of pre-trial detention has negative consequences and is counter-developmental. This report measures and describes these negative consequences. In Zambia, it was found that such detention may permanently sever family relations.
