In CAR, More Rape by UN Peacekeeping Reported by AI, UN Cover Up

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, August 11 -- When peacekeepers from France allegedly raped children in the Central African Republic and the UN learned about it a year ago, the UN and UNICEF did nothing, until UN Peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous asked to fire the whistleblower in March of this year.  Inner City Press asked UNICEF about its role, here.

   Now Amnesty International reports in detail on the alleged rape by UN Peacekeeping of a 12 year old girl in the PK5 neighborhood of Bangui on August 3. This was a day after UN Peacekeepers were fired on there: that is, it appears to be a case of rape as a weapon of war.

 So why, as Inner City Press has previously asked, doesn't the UN's Sexual Violence and Conflict office and Special Representative Bangura deal with UN Peacekeepers using rape as a weapon? This is not, as Bangura previously answered Inner City Press, sexual abuse or exploitation: it is rape as a weapon of war. Where is Ladsous, and how does he remain in his position?
