Washington DC (November 27, 2018) — The Enough Project applauds today’s passage of the “Democratic Republic of the Congo Democracy and Accountability Act of 2018” (H.R. 6207) in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Act, drafted and passed in a bipartisan effort, aims to counter corruption and human rights abuses, and to support free and fair elections, unfettered rights to free press, speech, and assembly in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and includes a program of additional sanctions actions targeting senior political leaders. The House bill must now pass the Senate to become law.
