Tanzanian Trials of Accused Killers…A Sincere Effort?August 13, 2009
PE partner Under the Same Sun has posted some recent news articles mentioning founder Peter Ash’s efforts to keep the international spotlight trained on the justice process in Tanzania.
One of the articles, from Canada’s National Post, has this quote from BBC journalist Vicky Ntetema, who questions whether the entire investigation into the killings of people with albinism was ever undertaken in good faith:
Mr. Ash and his organization are working tirelessly to keep the atrocities in the headlines, rather than slipping into yesterday’s news. Sign the petition and check out their site for many more articles and videos about the injustices being suffered by people with albinism in the area.
THE NATIONAL POST interviews PETER ASH about Tanzanian Courts’ decision to end trials of murderers of people with albinism due to “lack of funds”.
News agency REUTERS cites PETER ASH’S response re: Tanzanian Court decision to drop cases against those charged with murders of albinos.
