UN investigators on Burundi warned on Wednesday that serious human rights violations, including crimes against humanity, continued unabated, pointing to President Pierre  Nkurunziza « recurrent calls for hatred ».

« This climate of attack on human rights continues to be favored by recurrent calls for hatred and violence by authorities, including the head of state, and members of the CNDD-FDD (party in power, editor’s note), as well as by general impunity,  » said a report by the UN Commission of Inquiry on Burundi, established in 2016 by the Human Rights Council.
