Rights activists are hopeful that there are early signs of reforms coming to the nation’s justice system. A scholar imprisoned on treason charges in 2017 was given an eleven-year sentence which was appealed and reduced to five years. However, his case was recently re-opened, charges dropped and he was freed from prison. This happened directly after a visit from the UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers.

Praise God for the economic and social reforms that have started taking place.
Ask God that these reforms spread to all areas of the nation (The Bible, Proverbs 16:8).
