Resolution 45/35 (Central African Republic) A/HRC/RES/45/35

7 October 2020

On 7 October 2020 the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) adopted Resolution 45/35 on the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR). The HRC recalled that the international CoI tasked with investigating allegations of violations of IHL and IHRL concluded that the main parties to the conflict had committed violations and abuses that may constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity since January 2013. The HRC decided to renew the mandate of the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in CAR for one year. The HRC further decided to organize a high-level interactive dialogue at its 46th session to assess the situation. The HRC further requested the Independent Expert provide an oral update on his report on technical assistance and capacity-building to the HRC at its 47th session and to submit a written report to the HRC at its 48th session. The resolution recalled that “the authorities of the Central African Republic have the primary responsibility to protect all populations in the country from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.”
