Central African Republic in chaos, UN team finds
Catholic World News - August 07, 2013
A panel of UN observers has found that “the rule of law is almost non-existent” in the Central African Republic, the Fides news service reports.
The UN team expressed grave concern about “reports of killings, torture, arbitrary detention, violence against women, forced disappearances, acts of popular justice, as well as the general climate of insecurity and the absence of the rule of law established in the past 5 months.”
Church leaders in the Central African Republic have warned repeatedly about a breakdown in law and order since the coup that deposed President Francois Bozizé in March.
