“The statements that PEN produced about the progress on the case give continued visibility to the issue and continue to put the pressure on the government to take action. I think that the advocacy helps, because it is picked up by the local press. I also think that when you write asking for the charges to be dropped, it gives continued updates to many people who may otherwise erroneously think that the charges were dropped” - Stella Nyanzi, Ugandan human rights activist and academic.
