and was pre-occupied with other matters,and obviously did not consider the matter important then The panel found that the head of the UN mission in the CAR General Babacar Gaye of Senegal as well as the mission’s director of the UN’s Human Rights and Justice Section (HRJS) Renner Onana in particular made a “deliberate decision” not to report the transgressions with any urgency to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid or to inform the French government of the allegations The HRJS who is the chief of the human rights component for the mission in CAR was pre-occupied with the political sensitivity of the issue and in fact “encouraged the SRSG of MINUSCA to keep the allegations quiet” Both office holders committed an “abuse of authority” the independent panel concluded Onana on the other hand disagreed with the conclusions of the panel and maintainedthat he had informed senior officials in UN New York and Geneva of the allegations and lamented that his role in the matter was being “inflated” by the panel so senior officials in New York Geneva and Bangui could be protected for failing to respond Similarly UNICEF and the Special Representative for the Secretary-General for Children in Armed Conflict (SRSG CAAC) “took no steps to inform herself about what was being done by the UN to address the Allegations until the spring of 2015 when the Allegations were being reported by international media” The HRJS or UNICEF did not bother to locate the additional child victims who were mentioned in the course of the interviews by aUN Human Right Officer (HRO) Additionally even when the French government initiated investigations later based on the allegations the UN did not support the legal proceedings the report found The UN internal office sent recommendations not to waive the immunity of the HRO for her to take part in the French legal proceedings — her immunity was waived only in mid-2015 when Ban intervened The argument that Kompass was placed under UN investigation because he leaked the unredacted Sangari notes thereby endangering the safety of the children did not hold water The panel stated that if the UN was serious about the allegations then it would have taken urgent action to protect the children when their identities were revealed back in August 2014 Though Zeid had not abused authority in the CAR matter but the three-member panel observed that the “High Commissioner demonstrated a single-minded determination to pursue an investigation into the Director’s [Kompass’s] conduct “Personal motivations why would I The whole thing is so twisted in a context Why would Navi Pillay [former UN human rights chief] want to defend a contingent or others in the CAR or why would I want to cover up when I have a track record” Zeid stated exasperatedly to reporters on February 1 when asked by a journalist to respond to the panel’s statement Zeid ironically had authored a report in 2005 on addressing the problem of sexual violations by UN and non-UN troops in peacekeeping missions and was former UNSG Kofi Annan’s Adviser on the matter A decade later the same travesties of justice would come to assail his office and him However the problem of impunity in the face of abuse thrives not only with military forces but also with UN civilians “The CAR panel only dealt with the military not the police not the civilians only the military suggestive as if only the military commit these violations” Zeid stated One of the more well-known cases of exploitation of refugee children in West Africa involving UN agencies (including UNHCR and WFP) and the UN mission in Sierra Leone (UNASMIL) had surfaced in 2002 Based on the findings of a joint study by UNHCR and Save the Children-UK the organizations called out to the UN for further investigations against 42 agencies involving 67 individuals However a UN investigation team concluded that findings of the study were “misleading and untrue” “The other thing one should never forget —yes sexual abuses are absolutely horrific but they usually point to something else that is happening in the Mission and you find many many other violations of non-sexual nature And this is some sort of a marker — if you find that a minor is being raped then you probably need to look very closely and you will find a whole host of other abuses that don’t maybe reach the limelight It’s a complete breakdown of discipline” the UN rights chief observed Prosecution of abuses and misdemeanours by civilians also reels from the same burden of jurisdictional latitude as with military troops Some countries cannot prosecute citizens serving in the jurisdiction of another country where the crime has been committed On the other hand host countries where peacekeepers and humanitarian aid workers are stationed have such broken systems that any meaningful investigation and prosecution is rendered unlikely “The most the UN can do is say ‘thank you very much’ slap on the wrist administrative investigation has been conducted and you are expelled from the UN But if you have been raping young girls and young boys and you go home and nothing happens to you it’s appalling” Zeid said highlighting the glaring gap in holding perpetrators accountable “If the member-states are serious about this they have to pass this draft convention on criminal accountability [of UN officials and experts in missions] in New York—its been stuck there for so many years” he added India in 2014 aligning itself with the Non-Aligned Movement countries’ position had frowned upon such a convention It had stated that "dealing with the wrongdoings of United Nations officials or experts on mission did not require an international convention" and that Indian experts or officials on missions abroad were anyway punishable by Indian courts Will the nationalities of officials from UN agencies involved in sexual misconduct feature on Ban’s website “I hope so” the UN human rights chief said “Whoever’s going to report [wrongdoings] up the [UN or non-UN military] chain is going to be censured may lose pay may lose promotion In other words the disincentives for doing the right thing are extremely high Correspondingly you don’t have enough incentives” Zeid stated succinctly Anders Kompass after being exonerated by both the CAR panel as well as the internal UN investigation announced his resignation last week “I had to stay because I wanted to see this through But now that it’s over it keeps being very difficult for me No one has said anything to me no one has apologised to me” Kompass told the Guardian The costs have indeed been high for him By: Express News Service | Gandhinagar | Published: July 24 2017 2:34 am After giving some historical background of journalism
