News Update

June 24, 2015

By Kay Jacobson, News and Legislative Associate

Bosnia-Herzegovina: The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia has reopened the case on former military chief Gen. Ratko Mladic after the discovery of a mass grave containing the bodies of over 400 Bosnian Muslims and Croats. Mladic allegedly led Bosnian Serbs to commit genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes during his rule in the 1990s.

Eritrea: The United Nations inquiry into the East African nation has found several human rights violations which may constitute crimes against humanity. Between “extrajudicial killings, widespread torture, sexual slavery and enforced labor” the country may be subject to referral to the International Criminal Court.

Nigeria: Both Boko Haram and ISIS have used sexual violence against women as part of their terrorist agendas. In an effort to prevent and respond to sexual violence during conflict, the United Nations General Assembly designated June 19th as the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict. This date also marks the 2008 UN Security Council resolution recognizing sexual violence as a war tactic and peace and security threat.

North Korea: The United Nations opened an office in Seoul, South Korea this week in an effort to expand investigations on the human rights violations of Kim Jong Un’s regime in North Korea. A 2014 United Nations report found many human rights violations in the country, including detention of political prisoners, as well as “murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, and rape.”

South Africa: Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir attended the African Union summit on June 13th in South Africa. Bashir has been indicted by the International Criminal Court for “war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide” for the deaths of over 300,000 civilians in 2003. Despite South Africa’s status as an ICC member, officials refrained from arresting Bashir during his visit.

United States: The United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent condemned the deadly attack in Charleston, South Carolina by a white supremacist man. Urging investigation and justice, the group also called for action to “be taken to prevent gun violence and racist crimes motivated by prejudice that affect the security of Afro-Americans, their communities and society as a whole.”
