A delegation of four Tanzanian judges have arrived in Ireland at the beginning of a week-long technical exchange aimed at improving their handling of child sexual abuse.

The judges will spend time both north and south of the border, learning about both jurisdictions’ approaches to adjudicating gender-based violence and sexual violence against children.

The initiative has been co-ordinated by Irish Rule of Law International (IRLI), which visited Tanzania in July and learned about the challenges around prosecuting child sexual abuse in the country.

Writing on LinkedIn yesterday, IRLI said: “We wish the judges a safe journey and look forward to welcoming them to Ireland and Northern Ireland!”
