Panzi Hospital’s accounts seized

Health & Nutrition, Human Rights, 03/01/2015

Congolese tax authorities seized accounts of Denis Mukwege‘s Panzi hospital.

Mukwege regards the freezing of the hospital’s accounts as unjustified and said Panzi hospital had been singled out by the government. According to media reports, the hospital’s lawyer, Patient Bashombe, called the seizing of the hospital’s accounts illegal and that “no public hospital in DRC has ever paid tax.”

Before, Denis Mukwege has critized the Congolese government.
