Belgique: l'assassinat de Patrice Lumumba

12/12/12 

Le parquet fédéral peut ouvrir une enquête judiciaire sur l'assassinat de l'ancien Premier ministre congolais Patrice Lumumba en 1961. Cette décision a été rendue par la chambre des mises en accusation de Bruxelles. Selon celle-ci, l'ancienne colonie belge était à cette époque confrontée à un conflit armé et l'assassinat de l'ancien Premier ministre du Congo pourrait constituer un crime de guerre.

Des fils de feu Patrice Lumumba ont porté plainte au parquet fédéral en Belgique avec constitution de partie civile, contre une douzaine de survivants, des policiers, des politiciens et des fonctionnaires. Parmi ceux-ci, seulement huit vivent encore. L'un d'eux serait Jacques Brassinne, diplomate belge au Katanga en 1961. Les autres noms qui apparaissent sont ceux d'Etienne Davignon, alors jeune diplomate, et Charles Huyghé, à l'époque chef de cabinet du ministre de la Défense katangais.

Avant que le parquet fédéral ne puisse ouvrir une enquête, on devait déterminer si les juridictions belges étaient compétentes. S'estimant compétent, le parquet fédéral s'est basé sur la loi de la compétence universelle de 1993, qui autorise la justice belge à engager des poursuites dans le cadre de crimes de guerre, crimes contre l'humanité ou crimes de génocide commis hors du territoire belge. Les plaignants ou les prévenus doivent toutefois avoir un lien avec la Belgique, ce qui est le cas ici.

La chambre des mises a donné raison au parquet fédéral et a jugé que l'assassinat de Lumumba pourrait être un crime de guerre et qu'une enquête pouvait être menée dès lors en Belgique.

Wilfried Martens and the Assassination of Patrice Lumumba

Patrice Lumumba, first prime minister of the Republic of Congo and a pioneer of African unity, was murdered on 17 January 1961.

Democratically elected to lead the Mouvement National Congolais, the party he founded in 1958, Lumumba was at the centre of the country’s growing popular defiance of the colonial rule of oppression imposed by Belgium. When, in June 1960, independence was finally won, his unscheduled speech at the official ceremonies in Kinshasa received a standing ovation and made him a hero to millions. Always a threat to those who sought to maintain a covert imperialist hand over the country, however, he became within months the victim of an insidious plot and was arrested and subsequently tortured and executed.

Etienne Davignon and the assassination of Patrice Lumumba

Image

The French-language magazine Marianne recently published the names of 10 men implicated in the 1961 assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the first Congolese prime minister after its independence.  The list — compiled by Lumumba’s family for a legal investigation opened in Brussels two years ago — include Etienne Davignon, a former member of the European Commission and chairman of that “gentlemen’s club” for global capitalism, the Bilderberg Group.  Davignon worked for the Belgian foreign ministry at the time of Lumumba’s murder and reportedly drew up a telegram recommending the prime minister’s “removal”.

Congo to create city in honor of Patrice Lumumba

Image

KINSHASA, Congo -- The Congolese government is naming a town after Patrice Lumumba, the country's first prime minister whose assassination more than 50 years ago made him a liberation symbol worldwide.

The new city in central Congo, named Lumumbaville, will be made of several existing communities in the Kassai-Oriental province and will be more than 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) from the capital.

Government spokesman Lambert Mende said Tuesday that Lumumbaville will "honor the memory of a great Congolese statesman."

Lumumba was elected prime minister when Belgium granted independence to Congo in 1960 after almost a century of colonial rule.

The responsibility for Lumumba's 1961 death remains a mystery. Lumumba's son, Laurent, welcomed the creation of a town in his father's honor but called on the government to conclusively determine who assassinated him.
