PRESS STATEMENT BY THE CHILDREN

16th October 2003

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the decision of the court. In the last 7 years, we have grown watching our mother fight for something she stood so passionately for. As her children, we have felt that she never should have been charged in the first place for we expect our mother, as a human rights defender to stand up and give voice to the voiceless. Even though this long trial has taken away moments, which we could have spent with her, we love her dearly and are proud of what she has done. Although our hearts may be heavy over what has happened, our spirits are light, knowing that our mother stood for truth and justice.

Signed:

Children of Irene Fernandez
