It was American Humanist, Pete Larson, who raised the funds from his colleagues to pay the fines to release three old women 'witches' who were imprisoned, unable to pay their fines.
He is visiting Malawi in his professional capacity. Recently, he accompanied ASH's Executive Secretary, George Thindwa, to Lilongwe's notorious Maula Prison where he met a number of 'witches'.
He has been posting regular reports of his 'adventures' which maka excellent and entertaining reading.
