BNFA, हमारे क्लाइंट, शुरू में राष्ट्रपति Sata दो महीने दिया पीसीए मध्यस्थता समझौते यह प्रस्ताव किया था पर हस्ताक्षर करने के, आदेश अंतरराष्ट्रीय कानून के अनुसार Barotseland मुद्दे के शांतिपूर्ण समाधान अनुमति देने के लिए. ऊपर 8,000 Barotseland प्रतिनिधि तारीख को पीसीए मध्यस्थता समझौते पर हस्ताक्षर किए गए हैं.
इस समय सीमा को पारित कर दिया 28 मई 2014, and Zambia has refused to sign the arbitration agreement. This is unfortunate, and it proves that Zambia knows itself to be in violation of international law with respect to Barotseland, but lacks the courage to have its violations of international law examined by a neutral international arbitration tribunal located in The Hague.
Zambia would almost certainly lose a neutral international arbitration, given Zambia’s many obvious violations of the Barotseland Agreement 1964 over the past five decades. It is a shame that Zambia lacks the courage to settle the Barotseland issue definitively, हालाँकि, and to settle this decades-long question in a peaceful and enlightened manner.
We have counselled our clients to leave the possibility of PCA arbitration, while other means are put in place to ensure that Zambia’s many decades of abusing the rights of the people of Barotseland comes to an end. The BNFA has therefore left the door open for President Sata to sign the agreement in the future, as President Sata would do if he were capable of acting in good faith.
इस दौरान, hundreds of new Barotseland representatives have stepped forward to sign the PCA arbitration agreement, whose signatures may be found below, and also on the BNFA’s website: https://bnfa.info/.
