UN employees accused of 99 sexual assaults

UN employees accused of 99 sexual assaults
Last year the UN registered 99 allegations of sexual abuse or exploitation committed by the organization's employees. 69 of the cases concerned peacekeeping forces.

The 69 cases involve police and military personnel from 21 countries - most in Africa - in 10 peacekeeping operations, according to the UN report.

The report by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon did not reveal the nationalities of the 30 people who are accused of sexual abuse who are not part of any peacekeeping operation.

The report is part of a new policy to show openness about allegations against peacekeepers, after a series of allegations of rape and abuse have been directed against the international forces in the Central African Republic.

Most accusations were about troops from Congo, which is subject of seven allegations of abuse. But there are also accusations against UN personnel from Canada and Germany.

The report also proposed several measures to deal with the problem, including the UN and contributing countries allowing for prosecutions in the countries where the abuses occur, as well as the establishment of a DNA database of all participants in the peacekeeping operations.

The number of allegations of sexual abuse last year, is a significant increase from 2014, when the world organization registered 80 such cases.
