“Due to lack of evidence”, the UN was finally seized on June 9 in the Kamerhe case

It was finally on June 9 that French lawyer and former president of Paris Pierre-Olivier Sur (“POS”) seized the UN working group on arbitrary detention concerning his client, Vital Kamerhe, director cabinet of President Félix Tshisekedi.

Alongside Congolese lawyers Jean-Marie Kabengela Ilunga, honorary dean of the bar of Kinshasa, and Kabila Muana Kabila, POS, of the firm Fischer, Tandeau de Marsac, Sur & associés (FTMS), claims that it has not been proven that the detention of Vital Kamerhe is a measure necessary for the continuation of the investigation on suspicion of embezzlement against him.

The lawyers, who ensure that the file contains “no evidence of culpable financial flows”, also denounce the conditions of incarceration of the chief of staff at Makala prison in Kinshasa, which is overcrowded and counted cases of Covid- 19.

The referral to the United Nations should give an international dimension to the case and to the defense of Vital Kamerhe. POS also plans to travel to Kinshasa as soon as the mitigation of the pandemic allows it to attend the hearings.
