Want amnesty in the DRC? Get paper-pushing

Polman

A law on amnesty was recently put in place in the Demorcratic Republic of Congo. Its enactment means a possible halt to the prosecution of some people accused of participating in insurrectional movements. But in order to apply for amnesty, would-be beneficiaries must do a fair amount of administrative work for the Congolese Ministry of Justice. Cartoonist Roland Polman wonders just how effective this approach will prove.
