Namibia. According to
Countryaah, the 125 people charged with an armed uprising in
the Caprivi Strip in 1999 were brought to trial for treason.
The trial was preceded by criticism of allegedly enforced
confessions and against the state not granting legal aid,
which placed the defendants without defendants. The trial
was updated after a couple of days until February 2002. By
that time, many of the defendants have been detained without
trial for two and a half years.
In the fall, Namibia brought home about 2,000 soldiers from
Congo (Kinshasa), where they have been participating in the
war on the government side since 1998. Officially 30
Namibian soldiers were killed.
