Keep that ball rolling


Dear friends,

This past month, two long-term projects undertaken by TRIAL International have made significant progress. In the Great Lakes region, the organization has taken a first step towards creating cross-border judiciary networks – the culmination of several months' work.

Additionally, TRIAL International's quest for justice in Bosnia and Herzegovina has recently had a satisfactory outcome. The Court of BiH found a former policeman guilty of rape and kidnapping. He was sentenced to 7 years in prison and ordered to pay financial compensation to the victim. 

Finally, a case in which TRIAL International has invested a lot of effort has just experienced a new twist: the former head of the Guatemalan National Civil Police Erwin Sperisen could face new charges concerning the murder of prisoners in 2005.  

Enjoy the read and thank you for your support,
