Sex scandal in Congo threatens to engulf UN's peacekeepers
By Jonathan Clayton and James Bone
They should be rebuilding the country, but foreign workers face serious accusations

HOME-MADE pornographic videos shot by a United Nations logistics expert in the Democratic Republic of Congo have sparked a sex scandal that threatens to become the UN’s Abu Ghraib.
The expert was a Frenchman who worked at Goma airport as part of the UN’s $700 million-a-year effort to rebuild the war-shattered country. When police raided his home they discovered that he had turned his bedroom into a studio for videotaping and photographing sex sessions with young girls.

The bed was surrounded by large mirrors on three sides, according to a senior Congolese police officer. On the fourth side was a camera that he could operate from the bed with a remote control.

When the police arrived the man was allegedly about to rape a 12-year-old girl sent to him in a sting operation. Three home-made porn videos and more than 50 photographs were found.

Wait a second, your two most recent thread starts are about French kids beating up Santa, and French UN workers allegedly raping people?

Do you have a particular fascination with that part of the world, or is this something deeper?

Galaxy5,

Since you seem to be interested, take note:

among the 13,100 members of MONUC (UN mission in Congo) there have been 150 alleged cases of misconduct since May 2004, most of sexual nature or related to it, an investigation is inderway.

2 Moroccan soldiers have been flown back (but not indicted in their country)
2 Tunisian soldiers have been "repatriated"
1 South African soldier for rape on the person of a female SA officer
other soldiers from contingents of South Africa, Pakistan, Nepal, Uruguay, Morocco, Tunisia are investigated, as well as civilian members of MONUC, including a Russian who allegedly was conducting a large scale sex-oriented business, and the French you gladly mentioned, and an American citizen who has a record of setting up lucrative sex ops in every place he has been.

Next to this, the official DRC army, the various friendly and rebel factions and militias, and foreign troops in the NE of Congo have been doing exactly the same, though on a larger scale for several years. Except for AIDS, these ones have nothing to fear.

Should we elaborate on the French one ?

ScarletHarlot,

A 12 year old African girl is physically as developped as a 15-17 year white Caucasian and her mental is a lot stronger. Many are married at age 14-15 and have children.

Might sound strange to you, but this has been normal practice and behaviour in black African societies ever.

Of course the UN personel have other things to fear, DRC is one of the most dangerous places on earth, diseases and violence is common.
I think it´s a good sign that these things aren´t brushed aside, like a lot of things where in Sierra Leone.
I feel sad that Katanga didn´t become a country, UN is to blame for the
current state of the DRC area.

Who said "RAPE" ? can you stick to what you see or read or are you another one of those with blurred vision, jumping to conclusions without spending a tenth of a second trying to assess what the picture actually was ?

Come on Galaxy, we know you are just bashing Europe and France. Last I checked, the USA is just as "screwed up" as Europe. You don't seem to have a problem with some Mormans and polygamists in Utah having 10 wives, some of them 12 year old girls. There are lots of cults out there that believe in that shit. But hey, its in the USA so its ok!!!!  Insane  Yeah sure

Says it all really. Are you saying the underage rapes in the US are different from the ones that happen here (or don't, in this case)? Maybe you should check on the number of 17 year olds (children, by the way) executed by the US in the last decade, then come back on your high horse.

If this had happened at Abu Ghraib we'd be hearing the Euros and U.S. liberals calling for Rumsfeld's execution and Bush's impeachment. The NY Slimes would being running front pages stories on it for at least 6 months blaming Bush, Cheney, and Halliburton. Since it is troops from "acceptable" countries and under the U.N. flag, it will be ignored.

Shit man, do you have to turn EVERYTHING into a liberal vs conservative battle? It's getting OLD, and really fast too.

I pity you, I truly do...

All of us are like that.

No its not OK to rape a 12 year old girl. It's totally disgusting. I hope they will get what they deserve. And I know prison inmates really loves when a rapist gets sentenced to jail.
He will be their bitch for the rest of his stay in jail.

You have to admit that when the liberals have a brain hemorage regarding Abu Ghraib, but completely ignore the UN oil for food scandal, or raping underage girls, it rings just a teensy weensy bit hypocritical.

Obviously some fathers have dramatically failed to give a proper education to their boys.
It would be reassuring to know that "young US conservative" is not necessarily synonimous to half blind, pissed off, trigger happy (poster), mentally retarded, born to rant, connected to the internet and disconnected from the world.

If any of those would have paid some attention to the article they could have realized that it only refers to one girl "allegedly going to be raped", at the very least a very subjective opinion.
They could also have read that girls provide their "services" for anything between 1 and 3$, and are doing so willingly in order to survive, which makes rape a very unlikely or very rare prospect.

If any of you would know what sexual practices are like in black Africa, they would have known that girls know very accurately about it usually before they reach the age of 10, that many are no longer virgins by the age of 12, that many are married by age 14, and that sex is not part of any taboo, it is performed rather openly and as many times as nature permits.

Add to this the extreme economic hardships, and if you put sexually inhibited men in the picture you get a sex circus, not a rape factory.

Grow up and get a life, Xmas is a good time to build up good intentions.

There's much more than one.

A sex circus???

"Grow up and get a life"

No need to get nasty.
