Roy Sesana (L) lead applicant and leader

Lobatse, BOTSWANA: Roy Sesana (L) lead applicant and leader of the first People of the Kalahari and Bushmen listens to attorney Gordon Bennett (R), 13 December 2006, explaining the verdict after the final judgement of their case against the Botswana government at the High Court in Lobatse, Botswana. Hundreds of San Bushmen were wrongly forced from their Kalahari desert homeland and should be allowed to return to their ancient hunting ground, a court in Botswana ruled Wednesday. In a majority verdict, a panel of three judges ruled the Botswana government had not acted unlawfully when cutting off vital supplies to the Bushmen in the Kalahari desert but had failed to hold adequate consultations with them beforehand and had no right to subsequently deny them permission to return.
