The lawyer acting on behalf of jailed Swazi democrat Mario Masuku has himself been arrested, according to a report coming out of Swaziland, today (3 June 2009).

Thulani Maseko has been arrested under the Suppression of Terrorism Act and is expected to appear before Manzini Magsitrates’ Court today.

Mario Masuku, the president of the banned People’s United Democratic Movement (PUDEMO), has been on remand in jail since November 2008 awaiting trial on a terrorist charge.

According to the Swaziland Coalition of Concerned Organisations (SCCCO), Thulani Maseko may have been arrested in connection with comments made at the Mayday celebrations held last month in Manzini.
