GW attack

GW attack

The country head of Global Witness, a forestry monitoring NGO, was attacked outside

her office late on April 30. Unidentified men beat Eva Galabru but did not take any

of her possessions. She received an email the following day saying 'Quit'. The attack

is believed by many to be linked to the NGO's work in combating illegal logging.

Donors, who have been in close consultation about the attack, said the incident was

"highly regrettable" but stressed no link had been found to connect it

with GW's work.
