Burundi – United Nations – Human Rights Council resolution (Geneva, December 17, 2015)


France welcomes the unanimous adoption on December 17 of a Human Rights Council resolution condemning the human rights violations and abuses committed in Burundi by all actors and reaffirming that the perpetrators must be held accountable for their crimes.

We support the deployment of an expert mission on the ground, as provided for in the resolution, to investigate the violations and identify those responsible.

The adoption by consensus of this resolution reflects the international community’s commitment to resolving the crisis in Burundi.
