“I am shocked and saddened by the decision made by the Malawian court, which sent two innocent men to prison,” Madonna said Friday in a statement posted on her web site.
“Malawi took a giant step backward,” the singer continued. “The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support out basic human right to love and be loved.”
