In this open letter, human rights organizations express their shock at the death of Floribert Chebeya Bahizire. These non-governmental organizations call for the establishment of a credible, impartial and independent commission of inquiry to investigate this death and the disappearance of his driver. Establishing a credible commission of inquiry is important to avoid the mistakes of the past and to demonstrate clearly, once and for all, that those who target human rights defenders in Congo will be held to account.
