Legal & Human Rights Centre (LHRC) has released a report titled A Study on Non-Bailable Offences in Tanzania that was conducted in comparison to other neighboring countries. Reference was made countries including Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Zambia and (Zanzibar).

This study gathered opinions from individuals working in the human rights arena, on their perception on the existence of non-bailable offences and need to derogate from a person’s right to liberty in a bid to protect the society from alleged criminals and consequences of their actions. It also draws lessons and inspiration from neighboring countries including Kenya, Malawi, Uganda and Zambia. Since Tanzania Mainland’s criminal justice system regime differs from that which obtains in Zanzibar, this paper explores Zanzibar’s criminal justice system regime to draw lessons and inspiration from there as well.
