Foreign Exchange Student Advocacy Group Speaks On Diren Dede's Death

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - A California-based non-profit that advocates for the safety and protection of foreign exchange students is speaking out about the death of 17-year-old Diren Dede.

The Committee Of Safety For Foreign Exchange Students is calling for regulations to improve the screening host families go through. A spokesperson for the committee said if the host family had known Dede's whereabouts, the shooting could have been avoided.

Dede came to Montana through the Council On International Educational Exchange program, but the group would not comment on his death. The committee is not happy with the CIEE for the lack of comment.

"The boy is dead. What could have been done, what could we have been done? We need to work together on preventing this from happening again in the future. They could have at least had a standard statement. This is not just an unfortunate event, this is something that could have been prevented, should have bee prevented," said the committee's director, Danielle Grijavla.

We tried to reach out to the CIEE for a response, but they have so far, not responded to our emails or phone calls.

    Could action-packed TV fare make you fat? That's the implication of a new study that found people snacked more watching fast-paced television than viewing a more leisurely paced talk show.
