UN Asks for Questions on Repatriation from DRC Then Doesn't Answer Them, As on GoE Report

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, July 3 -- The UN asks for questions, and then doesn't answer them.

  Even on whether it is providing military support to Congolese Army units now named as engaged in rape, child soldier recruitment, support of the FDLR militia and conflict gold mining, there has been no answer from the Department of Peacekeeping Operations for four days.

  But on Wednesday morning its mission in the Congo, MONUSCO, put online a chart of repatriation of combatants of “Foreign Armed Groups” (it used that acronym) and said, ask your questions to @MONUSCO.

  The timing and content of the chart were questionable. But there was an even simpler question: who were the 30 “others” listed in the chart, not from Rwanda, Uganda or Burundi?

And so the question was asked, on their web page, directly through Twitter by the Free UN Coalition for Access @FUNCA_info, and finally by Inner City Press. But despite MONUSCO asking for questions, it did not answer them.

  Back on January 30, 2013, MONUSCO issued a press release denying a report by Inner City Press concerning the Congolese Army supporting the FDLR militia.

  Now, the Group of Experts report the full text of which Inner City Press exclusively put online confirms just this. Any response from MONUSCO? Watch this site
