On the sidelines of the celebration of the 57th anniversary of the party’s victory in the elections of September 18, 1961, a press conference was held on Tuesday at the UPRONA headquarters.
Despite the government refusal, the president of this party, Abel Gashatsi, asked the government of Burundi to let the commission of inquiry on Burundi to come to investigate the country’s alleged committed crimes.
“It is necessary that these experts come on the ground to inquire about the situation that prevails in the field of human rights otherwise they will continue to provide false reports being outside on the basis of false testimony, to give them permission to access Burundi to write the reports based on testimonies collected on the spot, “said Mr. Gashatsi.
“We say that they have drafted a false report, we are asking for a consultation between the parties to extend their mandate, but we continue to say that only the authorization to let them work will remove any ambiguity,” he concluded.
Abel Gashatsi president of UPRONA party and members of this party at the press conference declared these statements which may seem surprising to the Burundi government’s stance on this commission of Inquiry.
