Coalition of Human Rights Groups Call for Full Disclosure of Evidence Linking Rwanda to Congo Rebellion

Washington–(ENEWSPF)–June 22, 2012.  The Enough Project joined a coalition of human rights organizations, which includes Open Society Foundation and Humanity United, urging the U.S. government to pressure the U.N. Security Council to release all of the U.N. Group of Expert’s most recent findings related to Congo. The coalition sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday expressing concern that the publication of a crucial annex linking the government of Rwanda to the M23 mutiny in Congo was being postponed for political reasons.

Recent news reports state that the U.S. government has been a main proponent of holding back the complete report’s publication, despite strong protests from the Congolese government. In the letter, the human rights groups stated that any decision by the U.S. government to block or delay the full publication of the information would indicate that the U.S.’s commitment to prevent atrocities wherever they are committed, as affirmed by President Obama as recently as April, is wavering. The groups call for full disclosure of the report and its annex, which would represent an important contribution to peace in eastern Congo.

Read the full letter.
