SADC Tribunal ruled Zimbabwe land redistribution violates treaty

On November 28, 2008, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Tribunal ruled that the seizure white farmers' land under the Zimbabwean farm redistribution program violated the SADC treaty. The tribunal held that the farmers were owed compensation and that the seizures were racially motivated and discriminatory. The Zimbabwean government later declined to follow this ruling.
