These NGOs justify their position by the “multiple violations of Human Rights” of which are responsible the Power in place in Kinshasa and its security forces. According to the Deputy Secretary of FIDH, speaking on an international media, the DRC is not “exemplary in respect of Human Rights”.
“It is the capital of rape and violence against women, of political assassinations, of mass massacres both in the east of the country and in the Kasai, with more or less, within a year, 5000 people mowed, 80 mass graves. And even UN experts have been murdered,” he said.
