UN Tells Senegal to Hash It Out with Protesters After Elections Delay

УВКПЧ призвало власти обеспечить соблюдение традиций демократии и уважения прав человека в Сенегале и прекратить непропорциональное применение силы против протестующих. По меньшей мере трое молодых людей были убиты во время протестов, и, по сообщениям, как минимум 266 человек, включая журналистов, были арестованы по всей стране, сказала Тросселл.

«Расследование убийств должно быть оперативным, тщательным и независимым, а виновные должны быть привлечены к ответственности, – заявила пресс-секретарь. – Власти также должны обеспечить надлежащий правовой процесс для лиц, арестованных во время протестов».

Представитель УВКПЧ призвала все стороны воздерживаться от применения насилия.

По ее словам, в условиях растущей напряженности и высокой вероятности дальнейших протестов крайне важно, чтобы власти обязали силовые структуры уважать права человека, в том числе на свободу выражения мнений и мирных собраний.

Учитывая опасения, связанные с обстоятельствами переноса выборов, Верховный комиссар ООН по правам человека Фолькер Тюрк призвал правительство Сенегала обеспечить, чтобы предлагаемый диалог в стране был как можно более инклюзивным и включал голоса оппозиционных групп, женщин, молодежи и уязвимых слоев населения.

Генеральный секретарь ООН Антониу Гутерриш ранее подтвердил, что Организация готова поддерживать демократический процесс, а также содействовать миру, стабильности и развитию в Сенегале.

Он настоятельно призвал заинтересованные стороны участвовать в диалоге, поддерживать мирную политическую обстановку, воздерживаться от применения насилия и обеспечить проведение демократических президентских выборов в рамках конституции Сенегала.
