We have not received any representations from Congolese politicians proposing an independent commission of inquiry into the death of Floribert Chebeya.

My honourable friend Henry Bellingham's Statement of 3 June 2010 called for a full, proper, and transparent investigation into the death of Mr Chebeya. President Kabila has ordered a full investigation into the death of Mr Chebeya which we fully support.
