Court case resumes!

The case has resumed in the Namibian High Court and will continue until January 26th. You can find a detailed account of the first day’s proceedings here.

TAKE ACTION : Send a letter to Namibia’s Health Minister

Scores of HIV positive women in Namibia were forcibly sterilized. A number of them have stepped forward in to sue the government for violating their fundamental rights. The hearings have sparked mass mobilizations and public demonstrations by HIV and human rights activists. Despite this, the Namibian Government has thus far refused to take the steps needed to end this practice. You can send a message to the Namibia’s Health Minister demanding that the government stop sterilizing HIV-positive women without their consent.

Send a letter to Namibia’s Health Minister demanding an end to the forced and coerced sterilization of women living with HIV.

Case to Continue 01 September

After three days of riveting testimony from two of the three women, the case was ordered to continue from 01 to 10 September.

Originally, the Namibian High Court set down cases for 4 days of trial. However, it became obvious the case would take more time to hear than the original 4 days.

Since the judge had a conflict for Friday the case ran for 3 days, 01-13 June.

The parties and the judge then had to come up with additional trial dates that suited all parties. They agreed on 1-10 September as both sides agreed that they would need about 7 additional days to complete the trial.
