On Minova Rapes, 2d Final Warning Was By Meece, Not Ladsous

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, March 28 -- Since the Congolese Army raped 126 women at Minova from November 20 to 22, Inner City Press has been asking UN Peacekeeping chief Herve Ladsous if the UN would just keep supporting the rapist batallions.

Ladsous refused to answer, on November 27, December 7 and December 18. After Inner City Press asked Ban Ki-moon on March 5, Ladsous' DPKO on March 7 handed a half answer to friendly scribes from AFP, Reuters and a few others.

On March 8, when Inner City Press asked at the noon briefing, DPKO's February 18 letter to the Congolese authorities was called “final.”

On March 27, Inner City Press asked what is the status of suspending support?

Later that day, it was promoted through lapdog AFP that Ladsous had offered another “final” warning to the DRC's foreign minister on March 27

When Inner City Press asked about it at an abbreviated UN noon briefing on March 28, Nesirky replied that on the 25 of March Roger Meece met with the vice prime minister and minister of defense to give a final letter that would term of all support to 2 battalion should not action be taken immediately - in seven days.”

So, another “final” warning -- not initially by Ladsous, either. But you wouldn't learn that from his lapdogs. Watch this site.
