Sliding towards yet another general amnesty? UN peacebuilding commission plays down Burundi's endemic corruption, eulogises on "restorative justice"

The UN's new "peacebuilding" commission has begun its work on Burundi, with discussions focussing on the Burundian government's demands for international aid. No mention was made of the resignation of the country's Vice President Alice Nzomukunda in protest at the recent series of corruption scandals, arbitrary arrests, and attacks on press freedom. No mention was made of the much-promised special court to prosecute the war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide that have claimed more than 300,000 lives since 1993. Instead, participants discussed plans for an amnesty-wielding "truth and reconciliation commission" and "the virtues of restorative justice as opposed to justice of retributive nature".
