Sushmita* was rescued in 2011 and her case is now up for trial. Usually the victim is the star witness, but Sushmita is mute and unable to give a testimony of what happened.  Without her ability to testify, our regional director, an eye-witness to her rescue, was called to testify last week. His testimony was denied on a technicality.

This led to the Public Prosecutor deciding not to take his evidence. However,the Judge observed that our regional director went to court and was ready to testify, which highlights the seriousness of this case.We have received summons for another staff member, another eyewitness to Sushmita’s rescue, to testify on August 2nd, 2014. We request your prayers to ensure that justice prevail
