  Rwandan Tribunals Tuesday 17 September 2002  
Widows from the genocide in Rwanda in 1994 are being denied a fair hearing at the international criminal court in Tanzania.

There have been complaints that women who testify against their rapists are forced to return to their villages where they may be beaten or even killed by relatives of the accused.
Margaret Owen, founder of a support group for the women, has just returned from Rwanda. She joins Jenni to report on the continuting situation there.
