Parliamentary committee heard testimonies of “macabre acts” in Cabo Delgado
The Mozambican Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional Affairs, Human Rights and Legality heard testimonies of “macabre and indescribable acts” by armed groups operating in the north of the country
The findings of the commission are part of the report of the inquiry that CACDL carried out among the victims of the armed conflict in the province of Cabo Delgado, northern Mozambique, and which it is yet to deliver to the Permanent Commission of the Assembly of the Republic.
Speaking today to Television of Mozambique (TVM) about the preliminary results of the inquiry, the commission’s chairman, António Boene, said that the populations displaced by the clashes reported “macabre and indescribable acts” practiced by the armed groups.
“In the conversation we had, the popular people reported situations of serious violation of human rights by terrorists, macabre and indescribable acts,” said António Boene. Boene added that victims of the armed conflict in Cabo Delgado need psychosocial support, due to the trauma inflicted by armed violence.
