"This report talks about a violation but it is not clear. I think that it is a river which does not flow smoothly", Presidential Spokesman, Leonida Hatungimana,told a press conference over the weekend in response to a report of the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki Moon released last week.
Mr Ban stressed that "no progress had been accomplished over the creation of the mechanisms of transitional justice".
He also criticized the government for demanding an excessively big role within the tripartite management committee on the consultations for the establishment of transitional justice.
The spokesperson added that contact was going to be made with the United Nations to clear the air.
However, according to him, the government had already named two persons as national directors to support the national consultations.
Envisaged by an agreement signed between the UN and the Burundian government last November, the consultation for the creation of the mechanisms of transitional justice (Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Special Court) still have not started whereas they were planned to have completed their work by March 2008.
