I remember meeting Josepha Kanawi when she was with the Law Reform Commission. At the time (somewhere between 1988 and 1990), I was teaching at the Catholic Seminary at Bomana.

She was very helpful with information on various legal matters. With regard to the situation where a woman was in danger from her husband, I remember telling her about a Catholic Church law (canon 1153) that acknowledged and recognised the right of the threatened person to leave the offending partner, even on their own authority.

Josepha later told me she used this information in some of her presentations. I had not met her since then. May she rest in peace.
