The problem with the recent measures is that they do not make the UN Personnel who commit this kind of crimes accountable before an International Court – the personnel next to never face any consequences as a result of their crimes, other than being sent home.

Articles about how UN Personnel abuse and exploit women and children in war zones.

As unbelievable as it is, this is happening, it is happening now and we really need to stop it. The only Body that can stop it is the UN, because it is their personnel who are the criminals here, and they need to step up and reform the way they deal with this sort of thing, both in the field and in the legislation.

Please sign the petition
