Browning acquitted on fire-bombing charges

Anti-apartheid activist Kerry Browning was acquitted by a Canberra jury on July 4 on all charges related to the alleged fire bombing in 1988 of cars belonging to the South African and US embassies.

Browning, who spent most of the more than two years since she was charged under virtual house arrest, was convicted on a charge of writing a threatening letter to the US ambassador.

Sentenced to a good behaviour bond, she vowed to continue her efforts to prove her innocence of this charge as well.
