Leaked UN Report Details Blunders in CAR Sex Abuse Inquiry

After nearly 100 women and girls in Central African Republic accused Burundian and Gabonese peacekeepers of rape, sexual abuse, and exploitation, the UN deployed investigators to the country in 2016. A 50-page internal UN report, marked "confidential draft" and obtained by The New Humanitarian from a former UN staffer, details blunders in the investigations and lays out how women and girls - as well as UN investigators - were let down in the process.
