SG/SM/16986-AFR/3188: Concerned about Deteriorating Security Situation in Burundi, Secretary-General Calls on Authorities to Investigate Recent Political Assassinations (03.08.2015)

Gen Adolphe

The following statement was issued today by the Spokesman for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

The Secretary-General notes with great concern the continuing deterioration of the security environment in Burundi following an electoral period marked by violence and the violation of human rights, including the right to life.

In this context, the Secretary-General strongly condemns the killing of General Adolphe Nshimirimana on 2 August.  He welcomes President [Pierre] Nkurunziza’s message to the nation to remain calm and to the competent authorities to expeditiously investigate this assassination in order to bring the perpetrators to justice.  He calls on the Burundian authorities to investigate diligently other recent political assassinations.

The Secretary-General renews his appeal to all Burundians to resume an inclusive dialogue without delay and peacefully settle their differences under the facilitation of President [Yoweri Kaguta] Museveni as mandated by the East African Community.

The Secretary-General remains committed to supporting peace consolidation and conflict prevention efforts in Burundi.
