The Malawi Human Rights Commission this week released a report finding police responsible for the death, by torture, of a man unlawfully arrested on suspicion of being involved in the abduction and killing of a child with albinism. This is just the latest development in the horror of Malawi's increasingly endangered albino people, murdered for their body parts to satisfy occult beliefs, and it follows just days after a high court judge passed the death sentence on the convicted killer of a man with albinism (see separate story below).

Goodson Fanizo, 14, a Malawian child with albinism, was abducted on 13 February 2019. Although six suspects were picked up by police, neither the child nor his body has yet been found. However, one of the last of the suspects to be arrested, Buleya Lule, 44, died just days after he was taken into custody by police.
