Human rights in DRC: Still the Governement Congolese tempered?

 

*A report accuses ASADHO all Congolese governments of violation of human rights

 


The Congolese government from 1960 to date have their hands covered with blood. The perpetrators of human rights must be pursued through the courts. This conclusion emerges from the last report of the African Association for the Defence of Human Rights (ASADHO), presented Tuesday, August 31 in Kinshasa, the situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
"To win and retain political power, some Congolese have been killed or seriously detrimental to the individual rights enshrined in the law," reads the report ASADHO.
According to this document, each government has used its own method to violate human rights.
The President of ASADHO, Jean-Claude Katende recommended to Justice to initiate prosecutions against politicians, soldiers and police officers who committed serious crimes against the Congolese citizens.
"The murders of the first Prime Minister of Congo Patrice Emery Lumumba Floribert Chebeya and the disappearance of Faithful Bazan are cases which must challenge all Congolese," he said.
Politicians, soldiers and police officers who have committed serious crimes against the citizens still enjoy the protection of their accomplices who have political power.
Reacting to the publication of this report, Lambert Mende, the Minister of Communication and Media said Wednesday that reports from NGOs of human rights are valuable tools to guide government policy in this area.

But Lambert Mende warned that his government will not support this report if it is instrumentally for political purposes.
