The Congolese authorities and the UN have not done enough to hold human rights violators  to account and deliver justice to victims a decade after the landmark United Nations Congo Mapping Exercise Report was published in October 2010, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch said today.

The mapping report documented more than 600 incidents of serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law committed in the Democratic Republic of Congo between March 1993 and June 2003.

The failure to identify and put in place adequate mechanisms to provide justice and reparations has left thousands of victims and their families helpless.
