Tanzania Joins Rwanda in African Court Withdrawal

The government has taken away the right of individuals and NGOs to directly file cases against it at the Arusha-based African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights. Amnesty International has said this withdrawal of rights will rob people and organisations in Tanzania "a vital avenue to justice, in a country whose justice system is deeply flawed".
