Update: Tanzanian Courts Abandon ProsecutionAugust 11, 2009
An update on the threat to people with albinism in Tanzania from our partner organization, Under the Same Sun–
Vancouver BC, Canada – August 6, 2009:
“As the slaughter of albinos continues, promises from Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete and Prime Minister Mizengo Pinda that the killers would be brought to justice swiftly have not yet been fulfilled. Now the Kahama and Shinyanga High Courts which have been holding trials for 4 of the suspected killers of victims with albinism say they have run out of funds. THESE TRIALS HAVE NOW BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. ”
