I. Introduction

  1. Le présent rapport, qui couvre la période allant de janvier à décembre 2015, est soumis en application du paragraphe 22 de la résolution 2106 (2013), dans laquelle le Conseil de sécurité m’a prié de lui faire rapport chaque année sur la mise en oeuvre de ses résolutions 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009) et 1960 (2010) et de lui recommander des mesures stratégiques. Les faits nouveaux survenus pendant la période considérée renforcent les craintes au sujet de l’utilisation de la violence sexuelle par les groupes terroristes et extrémistes violents, notamment dans le cadre du système de punition et de récompense instauré pour consolider leur pouvoir. Dans sa résolution 2242 (2015), le Conseil a constaté l’évolution du contexte mondial en matière de paix et de sécurité, en particulier les dimensions sexuelles de l’extrémisme violent et du déplacement massif de population. En qualifiant la violence sexuelle à la fois de tactique de guerre et de tactique de terrorisme [résolution 2242 (2015)], il a reconnu que les stratégies de règlement des conflits et de lutte contre le terrorisme ne pouvaient plus être dissociées des efforts entrepris pour protéger et autonomiser les femmes et les filles et lutter contre les violences sexuelles liées aux conflits.

  2. L’expression « violences sexuelles liées aux conflits » recouvre des actes tels que le viol, l’esclavage sexuel, la prostitution, la grossesse, l’avortement, la stérilisation et le mariage forcés et toute autre forme de violence sexuelle de gravité comparable, perpétrés contre des femmes, des hommes, des filles ou des garçons, et ayant un lien direct ou indirect (temporel, géographique ou causal) avec un conflit. Ce lien peut se manifester dans le profil de l’auteur (qui est souvent rattaché à un groupe armé, étatique ou non), le profil de la victime (qui appartient souvent à une minorité politique, ethnique ou religieuse persécutée), le climat d’impunité (qui est généralement associé à l’effondrement de l’État), les répercussions transfrontières (comme les déplacements de population et la traite des personnes) ou les violations d’accords de cessez-le-feu.

  3. Même si de nombreuses régions sont exposées à la menace de violences sexuelles liées aux conflits, en sont le théâtre ou en subissent les retombées, le présent rapport se limite toutefois aux 19 pays pour lesquels on dispose d’informations fiables. Pour la première fois, les entités des Nations Unies sur le terrain ont été priées de présenter des rapports sur l’utilisation de la violence sexuelle comme tactique de terrorisme (voir sect. III). Il convient de lire le présent rapport en tenant compte de mes sept rapports précédents sur les violences sexuelles liées aux conflits, l’ensemble des informations qu’ils contiennent indiquant les raisons qui ont présidé à l’inscription de 48 parties sur la liste (voir annexe). Comme en 2014, la majorité de ces parties sont des acteurs non étatiques. Intervenir auprès de ces acteurs pour les amener à respecter les résolutions du Conseil de sécurité soulève des difficultés politiques et opérationnelles sans précédent. Tous les États qui ont été inscrits à maintes reprises sur la liste en raison de graves violations contre des enfants et de violences sexuelles liées aux conflits ne seront plus autorisés à participer aux opérations de paix des Nations Unies. Les fournisseurs de contingents et de personnel de police qui sont actuellement visés dans cette liste pour de telles raisons sont priés de prendre contact avec mes représentants spéciaux pour s’en faire retirer et pour mettre en oeuvre des engagements assortis d’échéances précises ainsi que des plans d’action concrets afin de faire cesser les violations qui ont motivé leur inscription [voir résolution 2242 (2015) et S/2015/682].

  4. Le présent rapport a été établi sur la base d’informations réunies par les Nations Unies. Grâce à la présence accrue sur le terrain de conseillers pour la protection des femmes, qui sont chargés de convoquer les réunions dans le cadre des arrangements de suivi, d’analyse et de communication de l’information relatifs aux violences sexuelles liées aux conflits et de faciliter le dialogue entre les parties au conflit en vue d’obtenir des engagements en matière de protection, la qualité des données et des analyses guidant les interventions s’est améliorée. À ce jour, 34 conseillers sont déployés dans sept missions. Les six missions de maintien de la paix investies d’un mandat de protection des civils ont toutes mis en place les arrangements de suivi, d’analyse et de communication de l’information et intégré dans leurs dispositifs de protection au sens large le tableau d’indicateurs d’alerte rapide relatifs aux violences sexuelles liées aux conflits. L’action concertée menée pour renforcer les mesures de prévention, d’alerte et d’intervention rapides face aux violences sexuelles liées aux conflits continuera de nécessiter des ressources humaines et financières adaptées à l’ampleur de la tâche.

  5. Renforcer les capacités des institutions nationales est nécessaire pour assurer la répression des violences sexuelles liées aux conflits. Conformément au mandat que le Conseil de sécurité lui a confié dans sa résolution 1888 (2009), l’Équipe d’experts de l’état de droit et des questions touchant les violences sexuelles commises en période de conflit apporte une assistance aux gouvernements dans plusieurs domaines : enquêtes et poursuites pénales, justice militaire, réforme législative, protection des victimes et des témoins, réparations envers les victimes. L’Équipe, qui relève directement de ma Représentante spéciale chargée de la question des violences sexuelles commises en période de conflit, est composée d’experts du Département des opérations de maintien de la paix, du Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies aux droits de l’homme (HCDH) et du Programme des Nations Unies pour le développement (PNUD) ainsi que d’un spécialiste détaché par l’initiative Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict du Royaume-Uni de Grande-Bretagne et d’Irlande du Nord. Elle tient à jour une liste d’experts spécialisés dans divers domaines. Depuis sa création, elle joue un rôle moteur dans la mise en place des cadres de coopération convenus entre ma Représentante spéciale et les autorités nationales et les acteurs régionaux, contribuant ainsi aux travaux menés par les entités des Nations Unies sur le terrain. Grâce à la fourniture d’une assistance spécialisée, les gouvernements peuvent juger efficacement les affaires de violences sexuelles liées aux conflits, comme en Guinée, où l’appui technique apporté par l’Équipe a permis l’inculpation de 16 dirigeants militaires et politiques pour des actes de violence sexuelle et d’autres crimes commis en septembre 2009. De par sa structure et sa composition, l’Équipe contribue également à améliorer la cohérence entre les entités qui la composent dans le domaine des violences sexuelles liées aux conflits. À ce jour, elle est intervenue en Colombie, en Côte d’Ivoire, en Guinée, au Libéria, au Mali, en République centrafricaine, en République démocratique du Congo, en Somalie et au Soudan du Sud.

  6. La Campagne des Nations Unies contre la violence sexuelle en temps de conflit, à laquelle 13 entités des Nations Unies participent sous la présidence de ma Représentante spéciale, appuie l’élaboration de formations, d’orientations et de ressources de sensibilisation destinées à renforcer les moyens techniques dont disposent les entités des Nations Unies sur le terrain pour faire face aux violences sexuelles liées aux conflits de manière globale et coordonnée. En 2015, la Campagne a alloué des financements incitatifs au déploiement de conseilleurs pour la protection de la femme en Côte d’Ivoire et en République démocratique du Congo, aidé à cartographier les interventions en vue de l’application de la stratégie nationale de lutte contre les violences sexuelles liées aux conflits en Côte d’Ivoire et financé un projet conjoint en matière de justice transitionnelle en Bosnie-Herzégovine. Pour améliorer les pratiques sur le terrain, plusieurs outils et produits axés sur le savoir ont été mis au point, notamment : des orientations pour le renforcement de l’intervention médico-légale en cas de violences sexuelles en temps de conflit, élaborées par l’Office des Nations Unies contre la drogue et le crime (ONUDC) et l’Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS); une note d’orientation sur les points de rencontre entre le Système de gestion de l’information sur la violence sexiste et les arrangements de suivi, d’analyse et de communication de l’information, établie par le Fonds des Nations Unies pour l’enfance (UNICEF), le Fonds des Nations Unies pour la population (FNUAP) et le Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés (HCR); une série de modalités d’appui au niveau des pays. Des missions conjointes d’appui technique ont été effectuées au Mali en janvier et au Soudan du Sud en avril. En 2015, quelque 30 experts ont été sélectionnés à partir du fichier d’enquêteurs internationaux spécialisés dans les crimes sexuels et sexistes, établi conjointement par l’Entité des Nations Unies pour l’égalité des sexes et l’autonomisation des femmes et l’Initiative d’intervention rapide au service de la justice, et affectés à divers mécanismes de détermination des responsabilités, notamment la Commission d’enquête internationale indépendante sur la République arabe syrienne, la Commission d’enquête sur les droits de l’homme en Érythrée, les missions d’établissement des faits en Iraq et en Libye et les instances nationales chargées de juger les crimes de guerre. En collaboration avec plusieurs partenaires, le Département des opérations de maintien de la paix et le Département de l’appui aux missions ont mis au point un nouveau module de formation sur les violences sexuelles liées aux conflits destiné à être intégré à la formation préalable au déploiement (fondamentale et approfondie), en plus d’un programme de formation avancée sur les missions intégrées à l’intention du personnel militaire, civil et de police.

World: Conflict-related sexual violence - Report of the Secretary-General (S/2016/361) [EN/AR]

I. Introduction

  1. The present report, which covers the period from January to December 2015, is submitted pursuant to paragraph 22 of Security Council resolution 2106 (2013), in which the Council requested me to report annually on the implementation of resolutions 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009) and 1960 (2010), and to recommend strategic actions. Developments during the reporting period have deepened concerns about the use of sexual violence by terrorist and violent extremist groups, including as part of the systems of punishment and reward through which they consolidate their power. In resolution 2242 (2015), the Council recognized the changing global context of peace and security, in particular the gender dimensions of violent extremism and mass displacement. The Council’s recognition of sexual violence as both a tactic of war and a tactic of terrorism (resolution 2242 (2015)) affirms that conflict-resolution and counter-terrorism strategies can no longer be decoupled from efforts to protect and empower women and girls and to combat conflict-related sexual violence.

  2. The term “conflict-related sexual violence” refers to rape, sexual slavery, forced prostitution, forced pregnancy, forced abortion, enforced sterilization, forced marriage and any other form of sexual violence of comparable gravity perpetrated against women, men, girls or boys that is directly or indirectly linked (temporally, geographically or causally) to a conflict. This link with conflict may be evident in the profile of the perpetrator (often affiliated with a State or non-State armed group), the profile of the victim (who is frequently a member of a persecuted political, ethnic or religious minority), the climate of impunity (which is generally associated with State collapse), cross-border consequences (such as displacement or trafficking in persons) and/or violations of the terms of a ceasefire agreement.

  3. While many settings are affected by the threat, occurrence or legacy of conflict-related sexual violence, the present report is focused on 19 country situations for which credible information is available. For the first time, United Nations country presences were requested to report on the use of sexual violence as a tactic of terrorism (see sect. III). The report should be read in conjunction with my seven previous reports on conflict-related sexual violence, which provide a cumulative basis for the listing of 48 parties (see annex). As in 2014, the majority of listed parties are non-State actors. Engaging with such groups to foster compliance with Security Council resolutions raises unprecedented political and operational challenges. All States repeatedly listed for grave violations against children and/or conflict-related sexual violence will be prohibited from participating in United Nations peace operations. Troop and police contributors that are currently listed for such violations are required to engage with my special representatives in order to be delisted and to implement specific time-bound commitments and action plans to address violations for which they are listed (see resolution 2242 (2015) and S/2015/682).

  4. The report is based on cases documented by the United Nations. The increased presence in the field of women’s protection advisers, who are responsible for convening the monitoring, analysis and reporting arrangements on conflict-related sexual violence and facilitating dialogue in order to obtain protection commitments from parties to conflict, has deepened the quality of the data and analysis aimed at informing interventions. To date, 34 women’s protection advisers have been deployed to seven mission settings. All six peacekeeping missions with a mandate that includes the protection of civilians have established the monitoring, analysis and reporting arrangements and incorporated the matrix of early-warning indicators of conflict-related sexual violence into their broader protection arrangements. A concerted effort to enhance prevention, early warning and timely responses to conflict-related sexual violence will continue to require dedicated human and financial resources commensurate with the scale of this challenge.

  5. Strengthening the capacity of national institutions is critical to ensuring accountability for conflict-related sexual violence. The Team of Experts on the Rule of Law and Sexual Violence in Conflict, in accordance with its mandate under Security Council resolution 1888 (2009), has provided assistance to Governments, including in the areas of criminal investigation and prosecution, military justice, legislative reform, protection of victims and witnesses and reparations for survivors. Reporting directly to my Special Representative on Sexual Violence in Conflict, the Team of Experts is composed of experts from the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a specialist seconded by the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Initiative of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The Team also maintains a roster of experts with a range of specializations. Since its establishment, the Team has played a catalytic role in implementing the frameworks of cooperation agreed upon between my Special Representative and national authorities and regional actors, complementing the work of the United Nations country presence. With dedicated assistance, Governments can effectively adjudicate such crimes, as in the case of Guinea, where the technical assistance of the Team has resulted in 16 indictments of military and political leaders for sexual violence and other crimes committed in September 2009. The Team, by virtue of its structure and composition, has contributed to enhanced coherence on the issue of conflict-related sexual violence among the entities constituting it. To date, the Team has been engaged in the Central African Republic, Colombia, Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Somalia and South Sudan.

  6. The United Nations Action against Sexual Violence in Conflict initiative, which consists of 13 United Nations entities and is chaired by my Special Representative, supports the development of training, guidance and advocacy resources aimed at building the technical capacity of United Nations country presences to deliver a coordinated and holistic response to conflict-related sexual violence. In 2015, it provided catalytic funding for the deployment of women’s protection advisers to Côte d’Ivoire and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, supported a mapping of interventions to implement the national strategy to combat gender-based violence in Côte d’Ivoire and funded a joint project in Bosnia and Herzegovina supporting transitional justice. A number of tools and knowledge products were produced to improve practice in the field, including guidance on strengthening the medico-legal response to sexual violence in conflict, developed by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Health Organization (WHO); a guidance note on the intersections between the Gender-based Violence Information Management System and the monitoring, analysis and reporting arrangements, prepared by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); and a menu of country-level support options. Joint technical support missions were conducted to Mali in January and South Sudan in April. In 2015, through the joint roster of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Justice Rapid Response of international investigators of crimes involving sexual and gender-based violence, some 30 experts were deployed to accountability mechanisms, including the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic, the commission of inquiry on human rights in Eritrea, the fact-finding missions to Iraq and Libya, and the national war crimes processes. The Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the Department of Field Support, in collaboration with a range of partners, developed a new conflict-related sexual violence training module for core and advanced-level predeployment training, in addition to advanced-level integrated mission training for military, police and civilian components.

World: CrisisWatch No. 153, 2 May 2016

The month saw fighting escalate again in Syria and Afghanistan, and erupt in Nagorno-Karabakh between Armenian-backed separatists and Azerbaijani forces. In Bangladesh, election violence and killings by extremist groups showed how new heights of government-opposition rivalry and state repression have benefitted violent political party wings and extremist groups alike. Political tensions intensified in Iraq and Macedonia, and security forces severely supressed opposition protests in the Republic of Congo and Gambia. On a positive note, new governments were formed in the Central African Republic and South Sudan to consolidate peace gains, and talks to end Yemen’s one-year-old civil war got underway, albeit later than planned.

In Syria, the fragile “cessation of hostilities” which began on 27 February collapsed in the north of the country and UN-brokered talks in Geneva unravelled. Violence escalated in Aleppo, where over 250 people were reported killed by days of regime and rebel bombardments starting on 22 April. That the truce lasted as long as it did shows the positive potential the U.S.-Russian partnership can play; its collapse, however, illustrates the limits of that partnership so long as differences over the ultimate ends persist, and support from regional actors, in particular Iran and Saudi Arabia, remains limited at best. Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, the launch of the Taliban’s spring offensive led to major clashes in several provinces, further dimming hopes of insurgents’ participation in peace efforts and contributing to increasingly strained relations between Kabul and Islamabad. On 19 April, the Taliban detonated a car bomb and launched a gun attack on the National Directorate of Security office, killing 64 in the deadliest insurgent attack on Kabul since 2001.

In the South Caucasus, heavy fighting erupted between Armenian-backed separatists and Azerbaijani forces in Nagorno-Karabakh on 2 April, claiming dozens of lives in the most serious escalation since the 1994 ceasefire. Each side accused the other of instigating the outbreak of fighting, and clashes continued across the line of contact despite the declaration of a Russian-brokered truce on 5 April. Crisis Group has cautioned that “there is a strong risk fighting will resume periodically, both to challenge the status quo on the ground and to attract diplomatic attention”, and called for the OSCE Minsk process to be re-energised through sustained high-level political leadership.

Several brutal murders in Bangladesh, including the killing of law student and secular blogger Nazimuddin Samad on 6 April, underscored the growing power and impunity of violent extremist groups. As the political rivalry between the ruling Awami League (AL) party and opposition Bangladesh National Party (BNP) continues to intensify, violent clashes around the second phase of the local elections also persisted, leaving more than 30 party activists reported killed. On 11 April, Crisis Group warned that the political conflict has resulted in “high levels of violence and a brutal state response”, calling for a strengthening and depoliticisation of all aspects of the criminal justice system to restore stability and ensure security.

In Iraq, Prime Minister Abadi’s failure to push his cabinet reshuffle through parliament, blocked by over 100 protesting parliamentarians, angered public opinion to such an extent that crowds of demonstrators broke into the fortified Green Zone on 30 April, prompting authorities to declare a state of emergency. Macedonia’s political crisis worsened as the opposition Social Democrats announced on 6 April that they would boycott the 5 June parliamentary elections due to the government’s failure to implement media reforms and clean up the electoral roll. The president’s decision to pardon all politicians facing criminal investigations for their alleged role in illegal wiretapping triggered days of protests in the capital and elsewhere.

In Africa, the Republic of Congo saw government forces continue to crack down on protests against President Sassou-Nguesso’s disputed 20 March re-election. When on 4 April they met armed resistance in a southern Brazzaville opposition stronghold, at least seventeen people were killed. The next day the government began airstrikes in the south which it said targeted former rebel bases. In Gambia, security forces broke up peaceful demonstrations calling for electoral reform and free speech on 14 April, arresting at least 50 protestors. The news that one arrested senior opposition official had been tortured to death sparked more protests and high-level arrests.

In a major step forward, after more than three years of turmoil, the Central African Republic’s newly-elected President Touadéra appointed his prime minister, who in turn chose a new government. Likewise South Sudan inched closer to implementing its August 2015 peace agreement when on 26 April Riek Machar, leader of the armed opposition (SPLM/A-IO), returned to Juba and was appointed first vice president. Two days later a transitional government was formed.

In Yemen, although fighting continued, UN-sponsored talks between President Hadi’s government and the Huthi/Saleh bloc – which got off to a stuttering start on 21 April – offer the best chance to end the war that began over a year ago and should be actively supported by all sides.

Colombia: La ONU en Colombia deplora las amenazas a defensores afrocolombianos

29 de abril, 2016 -- La Oficina en Colombia del Alto Comisionado de la ONU para los Derechos Humanos manifestó este viernes su rechazo y preocupación por las amenazas de muerte contra varios defensores de las garantías básicas para las poblaciones afrodescendientes.

Los activistas Eduard Mina, Francia Márquez, Jhon Jairo Valverde y varios familiares de Francia Márquez recibieron esas intimidaciones. Estos lideraron recientemente un diálogo en el norte del Cauca, que se realizó con apoyo de la Oficina de la ONU.

La dependencia urgió al Estado colombiano a proveer protección inmediata a esas personas y a investigar a los autores de esos amedrentamientos.

La intimidación y la violencia contra los defensores constituyen graves crímenes que ameritan el repudio de la sociedad y deben ser prevenidos por los Estados, subrayó el organismo en un comunicado. También advirtió que aquellos que hostigan y atacan a los defensores violan las leyes penales y denotan su deseo de perpetuar la violencia en Colombia. Con ello se oponen a una paz basada en el diálogo, subrayó la Oficina.

Colombia, 30 de Abril 2016
Fuente: RCN Radio - CO

Las fuertes lluvias de los últimos días, provocaron que algunas calles, apartamentos e importantes vías, resultaran inundadas ocasionando un peligro inminente para los ciudadanos y demoras en la movilidad por la autopista sur que de Soacha conduce a Bogotá.

El Capitán Iván Valenzuela, Coordinador Departamental de Bomberos Cundinamarca, confirmó que las inundaciones están presentándose en diferentes sectores que se complican con el crecimiento del río Soacha.

“Debido a las fuertes lluvias, el río Soacha está bajando crecido, pero la cuota del río, está por encima de los niveles del alcantarillado, lo que nos genera que el agua se está devolviendo y esto es lo provoca las inundaciones en los diferentes apartamentos”, indicó el oficial de Bomberos.

En este mismo sentido, el Capitán Valenzuela descartó que por el momento se hubiese dado un desbordamiento del río, sin embargo, dijo que están en alerta por la subienda que podría ocasionar una emergencia mayor.

“No es que se haya desbordado, pero tenemos emergencias por la Autopista Sur, tenemos emergencia hacia el sector de San Mateo, Portoalegre y dos barrios más que están reportando inicio de dificultad”, explicó.

El Capitán Valenzuela, subrayó que los uniformados de Bomberos – Cundinamarca, están atendiendo la emergencia por las diferentes zonas que podría tener impacto por el incremento del río.

Colombia: Fuertes lluvias afectan barrios de Villavicencio

Colombia - Chad - 30 April 2016 - 7:57pm
Source: Government of Colombia Country: Colombia

De acuerdo a un reporte preliminar del CMGRD las fuertes lluvias que se presentaron entre la tarde de ayer y parte de la noche en el Casco Urbano y zonal Rural de Villavicencio, causaron un taponamiento de ductos y alcantarillas, afectando a 20 barrios.

El torrencial aguacero causó el desbordamiento del río Guatiquia perjudicando los sectores de La isla, El progreso y Pozo Azul donde se registran 7 viviendas destruidas por deslizamiento, del mismo modo el crecimiento del Río Maizaro damnificó las zonas de San Marcos, pinilla y 13 de mayo.

Hasta el momento se reporta que las mayores afectaciones se presentaron en Pozo Azul, sector en el cual se evacuaron a 200 vecinos de la zona junto con 91 niños en condición especial de una Fundación llamada Crecer, quienes fueron llevados a ​ ​resguardarse en ​el Coliseo "La Grama" de la capital del Meta, según el informe un hombre identificado como Jorge Luis Castro Ladino perdió la vida luego del deslizamiento.

La UNGRD envió asistencia humanitaria para 100 familias, dentro de las cosas que se hicieron llegar están kit alimentarios y de aseo, 300 colchones y 300 frazadas, hasta el momento la situación está siendo atendida por un aproximado de 150 miembros de Entidades Operativas como la Cruz Roja, Bomberos, Policía Nacional, Ejercito con el apoyo de Cormarcarena, Gobernación y Alcaldía.

El director de la Unidad, Carlos Iván Márquez Pérez, recordó el llamado a la comunidad en la temporada de lluvias,” No exponerse a sitios donde se pueden generar crecientes súbitas, a donde se puedan presentar deslizamientos, ni manejar de noche por carreteras expuestas a los mismos. El aspecto más importante en la prevención, es la autoprotección”.

Somalia: Somalia Rainfall Forecast - Issued: 30/04/2016
