CAR: Amnesty Int'l decries slow pace of justice for war crimes victims

Amnesty International said in a report on Thursday that many perpetrators of human rights violations and abuses in the Central African Republic (CAR) have not been brought to justice two years after the country inaugurated a Special Criminal Court.

According to the rights advocacy group, various armed groups and individuals have enjoyed impunity for crimes under international law, including unlawful killings and sexual violence in the war-torn country for several decades.

It recounted that civilians have borne the brunt of successive waves of violence and armed conflict since 2002 in CAR as thousands have been killed, raped, and over half a million people are still displaced.
