This one of those things that make you think “Huh?”. It seems in Ethiopia accusing someone of being a pedophile is considered defamation. British school teacher Jill Campbell is facing up to 6 months jail time for exposing a pedophile an orphanage run by a Swiss charity.
The strange thing is that the pervert was convicted in 2003 and received a 9 year sentence for his crime. The charity admitted the abused happened, apologized and fled the country in shame. Colin Tucker a spokesman for the so-called charity is upset that Campbell is defaming their character.
Tucker’s group placed a pervert in charge of an orphanage. Further they admitted that they allowed this to happen. Yet, somehow the whistle blower should apologize to them? Yeah right. In case you are wondering the so-called charity is Terre Des Hommes. The front page of their website is full of stories about ending child exploitation and trafficking. Seems like they should be more concerned about the conduct of their own employees.
Campbell’s husband Gary did apoligize last month. He did so only because at least one of them needed to be a home to care for their children. The Ethiopian Court System, Colin Tucker and his so-called charity should apologize to the Campbells and their family.
