Mob Justice in Burundi

This 105-page report finds that authorities have at times been directly involved in public killings and beatings of suspected criminals, or have facilitated them by forming untrained "security committees" that operate at the margins of the law. In other cases, officials have stood by while mobs attacked alleged criminals. The report, based on seven months of field research, finds that such killings rarely result in official investigations, let alone prosecutions.
