H.E Peter Eriksson, the Swedish Minister for International Development Cooperation has on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, paid a courtesy visit to the Legal and Human Rights Centre. The visit aimed at learning the work done by LHRC especially in enhancing access to justice through Legal Aid provision.
Speaking during his visit, Minister Eriksson said; “We (Sweden) are working to promote human rights and democracy in different areas of the world. This organization (LHRC) is a good example of an institution that creates the possibilities for people that are poor to enjoy their rights".
On her side, the Executive Director for Legal and Human Rights Centre, Ms. Anna Henga thanked the Minister and the Embassy of Sweden for continued support to LHRC in promoting human rights in Tanzania. “We thank H.E Minister for visiting us and we are grateful for the support we have been receiving from the Swedish Government. They (Swedish Government) have been supporting us for more than 16 years now. And we have been able to achieve a lot through their support” - said Anna Henga.
Sweden has since 2001 been greatly supporting LHRC and the ties between the two have brought positive changes in Tanzania.
H.E. Peter Eriksson has been in Tanzania since May 19, 2019, engaging in talks with the Government and other recipients of Sweden supports. His visit aims at contemplating the way forward regarding the renewal of bilateral cooperation between Tanzania and Sweden given that the development cooperation between the two countries is coming to an end by December 2019.
