Court sentences killers of albino man to 30 years in prison

A court in Mozambique has sentenced five out of eight people involved in the murder of a man with albinism in July last year to jail.

The sentences range from eight to 30 years.

The judge said the convicts had committed crimes of aggravated homicide, possession of human bones and criminal association.

They must also pay $5,000 (£4,000) to the family of the victim.

Four of the five suspects confessed to their involvement in the crime, however, they did not say who was behind it.

They had a market in the district of Murrupula for the sale of the albino victim’s bones.

The co-defendants told the court that they had dismembered the victim’s body, removed his arms and then handed him over to a foreign citizen in Mozambique who paid them about $95,000 (£80,000).

To commit their crime, the convicts lured their victim to a location where they said they would introduce him to a girlfriend.
