16 January 2009 - Security Council - Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) - Press statement by Mr. Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Deputy Permanent Representative of France to the United Nations

The members of the Security Council strongly condemned the recent attacks carried out by the Lord’s Resistance Army, which have resulted in over 500 dead and over 400 abducted, as well as the displacement of over 104,000 people. The members of the Council expressed their grave concern at the scale of these atrocities and emphasised that those responsible must be brought to justice.

The members of the Security Council reiterated the statement of the President of the Security Council 22 December 2008. The members of the Council expressed their deep concern that the Council’s previous calls for the LRA to cease its attacks and recruitment and use of children, and to release all women, children and non-combatants, have not been heeded.

The members of the Security Council demanded that the members of the LRA cease all attacks on civilians immediately, and urged them to surrender, assemble, and disarm, as required by the Final Peace Agreement.
