The Human Rights Council should help prevent a human rights crisis in Burundi: Written statement to the 30th session of the UN Human Rights Council
After more than a decade of relative peace and stability following the end of the civil war, Burundi is once again in the midst of political crisis and risks a return to internal armed conflict. The report of the Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence on his mission to Burundi to this session highlights the need for serious efforts to redress past violations in order to end the tradition of impunity and protect human rights in the present and future. The Human Rights Council should take urgent measures to prevent further serious human rights violations in the country.
