The human rights organization is urgently calling for the immediate suspension of the death penalty and ultimately its abolition by the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

23 Jan 1998 description

Up to 16 January 1998, a total of 1,242 cases of cholera had been reported in a military camp situated 5 kms from Kisangani. Of these, 234 cases were fatal (case fatality rate 19%). The outbreak had apparently started in October 1997 but was not reported until 21 December. The population in the camp was reported to be 4 000 in December and 3 000 in January but appeared to be less after at least 2 000 soldiers had been transferred to another military camp.
