On 2nd June 2010, Floribert Chebeya, a Congolese human rights activist and director of the NGO “Voice of the Voiceless”, was found murdered in his car. His death was crudely disguised as a sex crime. His driver has disappeared.

It soon became clear that this murder was perpetrated by the police services of General Numbi, chief inspector of the Congolese police. Several police officials are arrested, including General Numbi’s deputy, Colonel Mukalay. General Numbi was suspended from duty. Three policemen fled abroad. This crime occurred less than a month before the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of the Congo, at a time when Floribert Chebeya was broadening his investigations into sensitive human rights matters.

The United Nations, the European Union, the United States and numerous NGOs are calling on the Congolese authorities to undertake “an independent, impartial and transparent investigation”. Chebeya’s widow left the DRC and took refuge in Canada. The international pressure is high and a trial before the military court is established.

Is the judicial authority capable of exercising an impartial justice?
