One year ago, on 6 February 2019, the Government of the Central African Republic and 14 armed opposition groups signed a peace deal in Khartoum to end the latest conflict that began in December 2102. Sexual assault has run rampant.
Nevertheless, many of the armed groups continue with grave acts of violence against civilians.
On 25 December 2019, over 30 people were killed in the PK5 district in the capital city Bangui. On 26 January of this year, clashes between armed groups in the Bria district led to 11,000 displaced persons.
Yet nobody is held responsible for these crimes. Investigations into the atrocities attributed to the former Presidents Bozizé e Djotodia, who recently returned to the country, are at a standstill and no one was ever held to account for the crimes committed in the ongoing conflicts since 2003.
