European Union has ordered its ambassador in Malawi to leave for participating in the protests against police abuse of women in Lilongwe.

Sandra Paesen has been commanded to depart Malawi within a week and return to Belgium, a year after she occupied the office.

Her expulsion takes place only weeks after Malawi complained to the union that Paesen had participated in the demonstration.

She condemned the violence and appealed for investigation on the matter.
