DRC Chases Away Rights Activist

The Democratic Republic of Congo refuses to renew the visa of a rights activist

The Democratic Republic of Congo has refused to renew the visa of a senior Human Rights Watch (HRW) researcher, who was to leave the troubled African country shortly.

Kinshasa did not give a reason for the decision to effectively expel, Ida Sawyer, who has worked for the United States rights group in DR Congo since 2008.

Government spokesperson, Lambert Mende, has been quoted as saying that the government's immigration service did not want to renew the visa, adding that, “That is all."
