UN human rights forum to investigate Burundi
Published on 1-10-2016 - at 04:23' by Reuters

The top UN human rights forum will set up a commission of inquiry to identify perpetrators of alleged international crimes in Burundi, including killings and torture, and ensure that they are brought to justice.

The 47-member state forum adopted a resolution submitted by the European Union by a vote of 19 states in favour and seven against with 21 abstentions on Friday.

Burundi’s delegation took the floor after the vote to reject the resolution as containing ’a lot of lies’ about the situation in the central African country which it said had stabilised.
