Strengthening Justice: Combatting Sexual Violence with Prosecutor Training

sanfya

From October 9th to October 13th, 2023, the National Prosecution Authority organised a five-day training program in the lovely Samfya district. The training brought together prosecutors from Luapula province. This program, generously supported by the Natwapane Programme under the European Union’s Gender-Based Violence initiative, aimed to improve the skills of these prosecutors in handling cases of sexual violence.

During this significant training event, Mr. Gilbert A. Phiri, S.C., the Director of Public Prosecutions, addressed the attendees. He stressed the importance of putting the well-being of victims at the heart of the justice system. Mr. Phiri was clear that those who commit sexual violence must be held accountable for their actions, as it is a serious violation of human rights.

Furthermore, he called for new and better strategies to deal with the changing nature of such crimes. He praised the Natwampane Programme for their support and their partnership with the NPA to eliminate sexual violence, creating a safer Zambia for all its citizens.
