Petition Tag - compensate
We urge the International Community (especially the United States, United Kingdom, France, Belgium, German, UN General Secretary, the UN Security Council members,European Union and African Union) to pressure the Congolese government to Compensate Victims of Sexual Violence in Eastern DR Congo.
The hundreds of thousands of women and girls victims of extreme sexual violence often described as "weapon of war" in Eastern DR Congo still lack proper support from their government. These victims are often socially stigmatized and many are so destitute that they have to struggle for their mere survival. They are being systematically denied the compensation which they are entitled by the same Government that manifestly failed in one of its fundamental responsibilities — to protect them against horrific sexual violence crimes without precedent inflicted by the military and armed groups.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION to urge the international community to put pressure on president Kabila to compensate victims of sexual violence crimes in East of DR Congo.
The Financial Services Authority (F.S.A.)is the independent watchdog that regulates all financial services.
How then, is the U.K. in one of the biggest financial downturns ever recorded (a recession, as it has now been officially declared), when the FSA is in place to supposedly stop this sort of thing happening ?
