New Humanitarian Examines Leaked Confidential Draft Report On Sex Abuse Allegations Against U.N. Peacekeepers In CAR

New Humanitarian: EXCLUSIVE: Blunders in Central African Republic sex abuse probe detailed in internal U.N. review
“After nearly 100 women and girls in Central African Republic accused Burundian and Gabonese peacekeepers of rape, sexual abuse, and exploitation, the U.N. deployed investigators to the country in 2016. The number of allegations rose to more than 130, with more than half ultimately dismissed. Now, a 50-page internal U.N. report, marked ‘confidential draft’ and obtained by The New Humanitarian from a former U.N. staffer concerned over the review’s findings, details blunders in the investigations and lays out how women and girls — as well as U.N. investigators — were let down in the process…” (Kleinfeld/Dodds, 10/31).

Additional coverage of the leaked report also is available from the AP.
