English – An inquiry on Burundi was established by the Council of Human Rights following the 33/24 resolution of 30 September 2016. It has a term of one year and consists of:

 Fatsah Ouguergouz (Algeria), its President, Reine Alapini Gansu (Benin), Françoise Hampson (United Kingdom)

 It is said that subsequent developments in Burundi will be treated in the oral presentation that the Commission will make to the Council of Human Rights in September 2017, on the occasion of the presentation of its final report.  Now the Commission of Inquiry has completely ignored the victims of the events of 1962, 1965, 1972, 1988, 1991, 1993 in 2003 to 2005. The Commission of Inquiry on Burundi chose victims 2015 only. This divides the Burundians and arouses a conflict that was in its final reconciliation phase.

 The Burundian Diaspora, regrets that the Commission on Burundi, was investigating some victims of the opposition found in a neighbouring country after the President of the Commission. Despite call from Burundian Diaspora, the Commission refused to listen to other victims who see things differently as they represent more than 80% of all victims.

 With this lack of professionalism and impartiality in the establishment of the truth, it is in this context that Burundian Diaspora rejects the Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Burundi in its entirety, because it discriminates against victims and demand that any inquiry on violations of human rights and abuses committed in Burundi, should definitely put all the victims to the same foot of equality.  This is why in protesting and rejecting this report; we members of the Burundian Diaspora collectively take to launching this petition to gather as many signatures as we can so that these signatures which represent our members’ views will be sent to the UN Secretary General, and to the Council of Human Rights in September 2017, on the occasion of the presentation of its final report.


This petition will be delivered to:

Commission des Droits de l’Homme des Nations Unies, Geneve

Secrétaire General des Nations Unies

Reasons for Signing

I, David Niyonsaba, hereby sign this petition to condamn in the strongest terms possible the discriminatory and biaised report on Burundi.

In fact, i would never say it enough other than drawing your attention to some obvious facts that have never been considered, which discredits your report big time.

Since the independence of Burundi, cycles of mass massacres, human atrocities at a large scale have constantly been taking place. As a result, mass graves can still be found all around Burundi today and the perpetrators of those barbaric acts are still free and always manouvering in every way possible to stop the country’s democratisation processus .

It my pleasure to revisit the past and bring to your attention some facts that shook the world despite the UN silence.

Elected presidents killed ( S.E. Ndadaye Melchior (1993) and S.E. Ntaryamira Cyprien 1994). I

In 1972 a documented hutu genocide took place and thousands and thousands of people fled to neighbouring countries and all over accross the globe. Up to today, 2017, 45 years later, survivors, widows and olphans still cry for justice in vain.

No word, no report whatsoever from the so called UN human right commission. And whatever that was documented from different schoolers and experts on these subjects has remained somewhere in your offices’ shelves. Shame on you and the UN organisation. You failed us, the burundian people, who dont wish none other than justice. In number to make it clear, we represent more than 80% hutu, tutsis and twa.

In conclusion: This double standard in treating the burundian file will only save to dishonour your organisation. Burundi is a sovereign and free country and deserve a better treatment on level grounds as any other country in the world.

Thank you.
