Black Mauritanians suffer ’slavery-like’ conditions, says UN | Global development | theguardian.com

Black Mauritanians are still subject to slavery-like practices, including sexual violence and discrimination, a UN human rights expert has said.

The UN special rapporteur on racism, Mutuma Ruteere, told the Guardian that generations of people, particularly women and girls, were still living with families in a “slavery-like” relationship, and were being forced into sex with male relatives, in some cases with their fathers.

“You have situations where people still live with and are working for certain families, and where women are forced to have sexual relations with family members – fathers and sons,” said Ruteere, speaking from Kenya. “And there are situations where children, particularly the girls who are the products of those relations, are then forced to have sexual relations with the same family members.”

“This kind of relationship is going on over generations. There is a lot of sexual violence against these women and girls, I met individuals who are subjected to this. It’s a situation that is slavery-like.”

Le « processus de paix » se déroule le plus normalement du monde,

The cabinet on Sunday approved a new map of national priority areas, which includes an additional 20 West Bank settlements and communities inhabited by former Gaza settlers.

The list of national priority areas features hundreds of towns and villages that are entitled to government benefits in housing, infrastructure, education, culture and security. The list was last updated in 2009 to include dozens new West Bank settlements.

Fifteen out of 20 communities to receive national priority status are strongholds of Habayit Hayehudi, one of Netanyahu’s chief coalition partners. Conversely, two Haredi communities have been removed from the list. However, the government claims that the reason for including settlements on the list has to do with security and is not at all linked to a policy of settlement expansion.
