I also raised the issue during a meeting with the Zimbabwean Ambassador in London on 30 June. We are in regular contact with the Director of Pensions, with whom officials last met on 12 June. Our Ambassador regularly raises the issue with interlocutors, including most recently on 4 June with the Finance Minister Chinamasa. She also wrote to the Zimbabwe Civil Service Commission in December 2013; we await a response. We remain in regular contact with the interested parties, including the Overseas Service Pensioners Association (OSPA) and the Federal Pensioners Association in Harare.</p> more like this
