La crise politique et des droits humains qui a commencé au Burundi en avril 2015, quand le président Pierre Nkurunziza a annoncé qu’il briguerait un troisième mandat controversé, s’est poursuivie en 2017. Les forces gouvernementales s’en sont prises aux opposants réels ou supposés avec une impunité quasi-totale.
The political and human rights crisis that began in Burundi in April 2015, when President Pierre Nkurunziza announced that he would run for a disputed third term, continued through 2017, as government forces targeted real and perceived opponents with near total impunity. Security forces and intelligence services—often collaborating with members of the ruling party’s youth league, known as the Imbonerakure—were responsible for numerous killings, disappearances, abductions, acts of torture, rapes, and arbitrary arrests.
