South African Lawyer, Colleagues Get Bail in Tanzania

South African human rights lawyer Sibongile Ndashe and her 12 colleagues, who were arrested by Tanzanian authorities on October 17 for "promoting homosexuality", have been released on bail, a colleague has confirmed. Matilda Lasseko, spokesperson at the Initiative for Strategic Litigation in South Africa, said this did not mean that they would return to South Africa yet.
