D.R. of Congo: Bemba's arrest is selective justic

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, D.R. of Congo, Law, War & Conflict

Siasa Duni comments on the arrest of Congolese opposition leader [1]Jean-Pierre Bemba: “As long as you commit atrocities as part of the government army, they do not qualify for war crimes, seems to be the message. There is the risk of another signal Bemba’s arrest might send to Africa: Don’t stop fighting or accept defeat in elections because they’ll drag you to The Hague.”
