Movement of 23 March announced Wednesday, June 12 that will hold the “judgment” of a dozen young Rutshuru arrested last week. Most of these young people were arrested during the closure by organized rebellion in the city of Kiwanja 75 km north of Goma.The military spokesman M23 Vianney Kazarama says that these eleven young will be judged in a court in Rumangabo. The “prosecutor” appointed by the M23 as well as civil and military judges already investigating cases, the source said.
Some of these youths were arrested on June 3 in a loopback Kachemu district Kiwanja. The M23 are accused of illegally held firearms. Six weapons were found in their homes.
Another part of the young people who will be judged are accused of masterminding an armed attack against a vehicle Kitoboko, about 1 kilometer from Kiwanja June 5. The attack killed a passenger.
Coordination of civil society in North Kivu considers it unacceptable that the M23 maintains a parallel administration. For nearly a year, the rebels occupied several towns in the province of North Kivu, where it has appointed officials of the local administration. source (R. Okapi)
