Bougainville president fails victims of brutal resource conflict

"It is important to understand the significance of holding Rio Tinto responsible for its actions and the actions of the PNG government. At all times, Rio Tinto, through BCL, controlled the government's actions on Bougainville ... whenever government action was called for on Bougainville, BCL was the one that requested it". - Momis, 2001

Sadly political leaders on Bougainville charged with responsibility for peace-building have largely abrogated their domestic and international obligation to challenge impunity and seek redress for victims of gross human rights violations. Indeed, in perhaps the most gutting blow for victims, Bougainville's President has aligned his government with Rio Tinto, a company he once accused of ordering and facilitating the atrocities.
