Dret mercantil a Zimbàbue

Legal Framework

Independence of Justice
No. The independence of the justice system is often hindered by political considerations.
Equal Treatment of Nationals and Foreigners
Judicial decisions are often influenced by political considerations. Being a citizen of Zimbabwe is therefore an advantage.
The Language of Justice
In principle many local languages (Shona, Ndebele, etc.) are permitted in addition to English. In reality an interpreter will normally be used because the judges only rarely speak other languages than English, Shona or Ndebele.
Recourse to an Interpreter
Anybody accused of a criminal act has a right to a free interpreter if they do not understand the language used in the trial.
Sources of the Law and Legal Similarities
The laws governing commercial entities in Zimbabwe have their origin in the Roman-Dutch law and contain borrowings from English law. Zimbabwe is part of the Southern African Development Community of (SADC) and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).
