Meru Petition No. 6 of 2012 (160 Girls Litigation Project)

This petition was filed on October 11th 2012 to coincide with the International Day of the Girl Child. The case sought to bring justice to 160 girls who were victims of defilement and receiving care at Tumaini Rescue Centre in Meru. FIDA was part of the case building strategy and had been closely monitoring the implementation of the Sexual Offences Act. The successful ruling on May 30th 2013 allowed the petition and ordered police to investigate and prosecute cases of defilement.
