Abstract On May 16, 2003, the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights sent a letter to each of the G8 heads of state, prior to their Summit at Evian, France from June 1 to 3, 2003. The letter raises concerns about the implementation of the G8's Africa Action Plan in light of the ongoing human rights violations being committed in Zimbabwe. In the letter, the Lawyers Committee urges the G8 members to ensure that the current crisis in Zimbabwe receives sufficient attention at the Summit in Evian. The letter points out that resolution of the crisis in Zimbabwe is not only a legal and moral imperative, but fundamental to the successful implementation of the G8's Africa Action Plan and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD).
