TESTIMONIAL IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

In October 2016, I have provided a witness testimony within the Subcommittee on International Human Rights. It resulted in the release on February 15, 2017, of the Report entitled “Division and Human Rights Violations in Burundi” by the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development.

Through that Report, the Subcommittee made 18 recommendations to the Government of Canada. The Subcommittee’s recommendations aimed to address the root causes of the crisis, strongly rebuked Burundi’s human rights violations, insisted that Burundi reengage with multilateral institutions, and emphasized that the Burundian regime would be held accountable for its actions.
