Enough Project Statement on U.N. Investigators Killed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo
The Enough Project is deeply saddened by the deaths of United Nations Group of Experts investigators Michael Sharp and Zaida Catalán and their interpreter, Betu Tshintela. Their driver, Isaac Kabuayi and two unidentified motorbike drivers traveling with the group are still missing. We extend our condolences to all of their families and colleagues.
The Enough Project, an atrocity prevention research and policy non-profit organization, builds leverage for peace, human rights in Africa’s deadliest conflict zones by working to create real consequences for the perpetrators and facilitators of genocide and other mass atrocities. Enough, and its investigative partner The Sentry, aims to counter armed groups and violent kleptocratic regimes that are fueled by grand corruption, transnational crime and terror, and the pillaging and trafficking of ivory, gold, diamonds, conflict minerals, and other natural resources. Enough conducts field research in conflict zones, develops and advocates for policy recommendations, and mobilizes public campaigns. Learn more – and join us – at www.EnoughProject.org.
