Burundi -

On February 12th, the United Nations (U.N.) Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (CAR) (MINUSCA) announced its decision to repatriate three military officers on suspicion they committed human rights violations during political unrest in their home country, Burundi. The alleged violations were committed prior to their deployment in the ongoing violence in opposition to President Pierre Nkurunziza’s controversial third term.

On February 12th, just days after the Burundian Government accused the Government of Rwanda of arming and training refugees to fight the government, the Government of Rwanda announced it plans to relocate Burundian refugees to other host countries. Since the rise of tensions in Burundi last April following President Pierre Nkurunziza’s decision to run for a third term, more than 70,000 Burundians have sought refuge in Rwanda.
