Svensk venstreradikal myrdet som FN-udsending i Congo (2017): “Let’s cut the head and get going.”

Historien er halvandet år gammel, men den bør være i arkivet. En svensk venstreradikal ved navn Zaida Catalan, tidligere politiker for Miljöpartiet de gröna, tager til Congo som FN-udsending. Hun kidnappes af oprørsmilitsen ‘Kamuina Nsapu’, og sammen med en amerikansk kollega skydes hun ned, og halshugges. ‘This ain’t The Cosbys’, kunne man sige, men den i dag 81-årige Bill Cosby, sidder i fængsel for tre voldtægter.

Fra The Local – Sweden mourns death of UN expert in DRC (29. marts 2017)

“36-year-old Zaida Catalán was found dead with an American colleague and their Congolese interpreter. The UN said it would conduct an inquiry into the deaths, the cause of which is not yet clear.

The experts and four Congolese nationals accompanying them were kidnapped two weeks ago in the conflict-ridden province of Kasaï-Central, where they had gone to investigate reported human rights abuses. …

Löfven said Catalán had worked tirelessly for peace and justice, that her mission ‘gave hope to a country that has long been plagued by violence’ and that she risked her own life to save others. …

The group was investigating and documenting human rights violations in the area, which has been seen violent conflicts since government forces last year killed local militia Kamwina Nsapu. Since then, hundreds of people have been killed in the unrest as tribal leaders have rebelled against the central government.”

Oprører: …Lufu lua batòka aba (…the death of these white people)

Zaida Catalan: I have children.

Oprørsleder: We belong to the bloodline of Kamwina Nsapu. When you come to force us to do wicked deeds, you die.

Oprørsleder: Start by cutting the head, do it right now so we can go.

Oprørsleder: Save your bullets. Don’t waste them. They are already dead. Let’s cut the head and get going.
