FDLR PRESS STATEMENT

RE POSTED FROM IKAZE IWACU

FDLR PRESS RELEASE N° 2015-005

The Democratic Liberation Forces of Rwanda (FDLR) denounce and condemn the forced
repatriation by MONUSCO of FDLR disarmed veterans and their families who were stationed in the
WALUNGU transit camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
The imminent repatriation of 9 people is the result of the operation by the Armed Forces of DRC
(FARDC) which took place yesterday in WALUNGU and aimed at kidnapping 34 people including 22
children. We learned that they had been forcibly taken to BUKAVU and that 9 of them were forced
to sign consent papers for repatriation to Rwanda and later were taken to GOMA.
The FDLR denounce and condemn in the strongest terms these despicable acts of kidnapping
innocent refugees and force them to agree to a forced repatriation disguised in a voluntary
repatriation by agents of MONUSCO.
The FDLR warn MONUSCO leaders that they will be held personally responsible for everything that
will happen to these people who were forcibly repatriated to Rwanda.
