ICC Note: Human Right Violations have become a common occurrence in the Central African Republic’s(CAR) Civil War. Both the rebel groups and state actors have committed many violations. This is causing the situation in CAR to continue to deteriorate.
03/20/2018 CAR (AllAfrica) – STATE agents and rebel groups have perpetrated at least 55 human rights violations in the Central African Republic (CAR) over the past week. Twenty-eight violations have been blamed on armed rebel groups while 27 are attributed to government agents.
The violations including murder, rape and kidnappings have been prevalent in the south-east of the country, particularly in Bangassou and Rafai.
Hervé Verhoosel, spokesperson of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the CAR (MINUSCA) condemned the renewed armed violence.
He particularly bemoaned attacks against peacekeepers.
“Tackling humanitarian workers who come to help a population in need is unacceptable,” Verhoosel said.
“These armed groups and those who direct or advise them including from Bangui (the capital city), will be unmasked.”
