The United Nations(UN) has sent open letters criticizing two major non governmental organizations (ngo) for not accurately describing recent events in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
An official from the United Nations’ Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) says recent reports released by Human Rights Watch(HRW) and Oxfam failed to correctly condemn major atrocities within Congo.
Alan Dosses’ letter to Oxfam stated that the ngo had failed to condemn the atrocities relayed by the survivors it interviewed. In his open letter to Human Rights Watch the special representative pointed to several reporting errors in the organizations literature. And concluding by saying he had hoped HRW would share the ambition to end instability and poverty which has continued to ravage provinces in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
