Democratic Republic of the Congo: International Commission of Inquiry needed to ensure justice, truth and reparation for human rights violations and abuses in the Kasai region
Item 10: Amnesty International written statement to the 35th session of the UN Human Rights Council (6 - 23 June 2017). Violent conflict in the Kasai region, which has forced 1.3 million people to flee their homes, requires urgent and immediate action from the UN Human Rights Council. Hundreds of extrajudicial executions and other crimes under international law committed by the Armed Forces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo have contributed to a conflict now affecting eight provinces in which an estimated 500 to 1,000 people have been killed.
