Despite Legal Moves, PNG’s Terrifying Witchcraft Killings Look Set to Continue

One step forward and several giant steps back. That’s how the U.N.’s human-rights office described the reintroduction last week of the death penalty in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and the concurrent repealing by parliament of the country’s bizarre 1971 Sorcery Act. ?Straight off a script for Game of Thrones, the act’s preamble recognized that various forms of sorcery existed and criminalized the practice of “evil sorcery” or sanguma. While disputes over sorcery seldom came before the national judicial system, they are common in traditional village courts, where the belief that somebody is practicing sanguma has been used in defense of murder.

The law’s demise, and the reintroduction of the death penalty as a bid to curb sorcery-related killings, followed international outcry over a series of gruesome deaths earlier this year: the burning at the stake in February of a young mother in front of large crowd ...

Apparently, if a witch doctor doesn't perform a cure, then he will be burned alive. I think the number of witch doctors would decrease dramatically and quickly, if that policy was implemented.

One can see where Catholic and Muhammadans missionaries have been active, Popular Folk Catholics, is more superstition than anything else. However, Protestant Papuans and missionaries have to work even harder of stamping this nonsense out. I would say they have quite a few good ideas, and I hope their fatherly protector, Australia, provides with the means to carry out more quickly what is already planned.

What concerns me about this is the hysteria that arises in these scenarios along with the lack of proof needed to condemn someone. In this example, the girl was declared to be a witch and burned alive simply because she passed by a sick boy on the street who later died. Many families of those who die of HIV are putting the blame on those they conveniently label as witches.
Further Into the article there is a photo showing her burnt to death in the fire. A large crowd watched as the girl screamed in indescribable pain, and I can see many, many children in the forefront. What a way to grow up...what a thing for a child to witness.
