At least somebody liked the mapping report

So the Rwandan, Congolese and Ugandan governments are particularly happy with the UN mapping report. Nonetheless, a list of 220 Congolese NGOs signed onto a statement praising the leaked UN mapping report, saying that it could finally shine some light on the many injustices suffered by the Congolese people. Like the Congolese government, they recommend the creation of special mixed chambers within the Congolese justice system, an option proposed by the mapping report (and not adequately reported in this blog).

(They also take the opportunity to accuse John Numbi, who is barely mentioned in the mapping report, of attacking human rights defenders).
