The U.N. Deputy Secretary-General warned on Wednesday against having once again to say “never again” over the on-going bloodletting in the Central African Republic.
“The Secretary General and I are rather, I would say, disappointed, that we so often use the term ‘never again,’” Jan Eliasson told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. “The very fact that we repeat ‘never again’ I think is a sign that it’s about time that we act on serious human rights violations early on.”
“Serious human rights violations are the first signs of something that could turn into mass atrocities,” he said. “And now this time we are acting late, I must admit, but hopefully not too late.”
