This report documents serious violations of human rights that took place in Kinshasa, capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, during and after the 2006-2007 electoral period. In particular, the report highlights two government security forces that were responsible for the majority of politically-motivated violations against both real and supposed political opponents of President Joseph Kabila and his ruling party. They are the Direction des Renseignements G�n�raux et Services Sp�ciaux de la police (DRGS), known as the "Special Services" police, and the Garde R�publicaine (GR), Republican Guard, the elite army presidential guard.
