BURUNDI REJECTS THE PROPOSAL OF UN POLICE DEPLOYMENT





After UN’s proposal to deploy 228 UN police officers in Burundi amid the violence continuing since April 2015, Burundi government’s spokesperson Philippe Nzobonariba declared the government’s rejection of the proposal on Tuesday. Nzobonariba stated that the situation is under control with the help of Burundian security forces while adding that deploying foreign forces in the area without consulting the authorities would be a violation of the country’s sovereignty. On the contrary, human rights activists in the area claim that the government should be ignored and UN should intervene in the area to stop the ongoing violence.On Saturday, 30th of June, around 1000 people marched to the French Embassy in Burundi’s capital Bujumbura to protest UN Security Council’s decision which was drafted by France. Tensions were still present after the civil war which escalated in 1993 and ended after the peace accords in 2000. With President Pierre Nkurunziza’s declaration affirming that he will run for a third electoral period, widespread protests escalated and according to the report of Human Rights Watch, more than 500 people were killed by the government forces. United Nations has approved the decision to deploy its police officers in the area in order to watch the human rights abuses and the ongoing violence. By Öykü Deniz AYTEMİZ
