Family of FNL victim condemns torture of FNL suspects
Iteka has also been active recently in highlighting atrocites by the FNL.
The family of Charlotte Wilson, the British aid worker murdered by FNL forces in the December 2000 "Titanic Express" massacre, who have campaigned for the FNL leadership to be prosecuted for Crimes Against Humanity, today condemned the reported torture.
"Much as we want to see the FNL brought to justice for what they have done, this is not the way. Torture is always wrong, it doesn't work, and it's against international law. Rather than torturing suspected FNL foot soldiers, we urge the Burundian government to arrest the organisation's leaders, and prosecute them for Crimes Against Humanity. We urge the Burundian authorities not to torture anyone."
