PIDP: ILC member in DRC protect land defender from criminalisation

Wednesday, 14th February 2018

Land rights defender, Mr Mwarabu Mbula Jean Koko, is in good health after spending a hell of time in the hands of the Congolese armed forces in March 2017. While Mr Mwarabu was mediating the conflict between two communities in Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), he was arbitrarily arrested, jailed and tortured. During this painful moment, a strategy coordinated by the Integrated Program for the Development of the Pygmy People (PIDP) in Kivu, supported by ILC, fought against his criminalisation, denounced his unfair treatment and brought him medical help.  Protecting the civil and political rights of human rights defenders working on land issues is one of the ten commitments of ILC.

En effet, l’évolution du contexte national et international, notamment réglementaire, et des enjeux liés à la terre lui font perdre une grande partie de sa pertinence.
