Protect human rights defender Justine Masika Bihamba

March 30, 2010

Amnesty is asking for your help on behalf of Justine Masika Bihamba.

Justine and her family have been attacked because of her work as coordinator of a women’s human rights organisation.

In September 2007 soldiers forced their way into Justine’s home while she was out, and tied up her six children at gunpoint. One of the soldiers assaulted her eldest daughter, then sexually assaulted and attempted to rape another daughter.

Although Justine and her children were able to identify the soldiers, they have not been arrested or brought to trial.

Please show solidarity with Justine and her family and take, literally, one minute to send an appeal to the DRC authorities now.
