Congo, CAR: EP condemned human rights abuses

On 12 September, the European Parliament condemned the latest outbreak of violence in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, and the unconstitutional seizure of power in the Central African Republic (CAR) in March.

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC):
MEPs condemned the latest outbreak of violence in the eastern part of Congo and demanded an immediate end to all human rights abuses, including the alarming and widespread sexual and gender-based violence. They reproved all forms of external support to the "disruptive forces in the DRC" and called  on the regional actors to refrain from any acts or statements that would worsen the situation in Congo.

Central African Republic (CAR):
The Parliament criticized also the unconstitutional seizure of power in the Central African Republic, by dint of armed force, by the Séléka coalition in March as well as the violations of humanitarian law and the widespread violations of human rights.
