ABSTRACT
The article discusses the plan of the Zimbabwean Dutch Farmers' Association in partnership with Great Britain-based AgricAfrica on behalf of former farmers with Dutch nationality who are dispossessed of land by President Robert Mugabe's government to file a lawsuit for compensation to an international tribunal. Over 4000 of their compatriots will benefit from the move. According to Bob Fernandes of AgricAfrica, the international law clearly states that a compensation must be paid when an individual's assets are compulsorily purchased by the state.
