Central African Republic: Refugee Situation UNHCR Regional Update 36, 11 - 17 October 2014

HIGHLIGHT

  • The UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative (SRSG) and head of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), Mr. Babacar Gaye, requested that all concerned parties ensure the implementation of the Brazzaville agreement as he believes that the recent crisis in Bangui is partly due to its non-application. Mr. Gaye believes that enforcement of the agreement, signed on 23 July 2014, would lead to the end of the crisis and provide a way to return to constitutional order.
