Malawi: Imposition of death sentence for crimes against people with albinism will not stop attacks

Index Number: AFR 36/0317/2019

The sentencing of Willard Mikaele to death for the murder of Mphatso Pensulo, a person with albinism, will not deter further attacks against the vulnerable group, Amnesty International said today. The organisation emphasizes that only adequate crime control mechanisms and effective criminal justice, through fair trials, for crimes against people with albinism, including tackling past impunity, can reduce the crimes.
