Abstract:This article analyses the institutional framework for the repression of environmental crimes in the democratic republic of congo. these are offences against environmental legislation that regulates, inter alia, fauna, flora, mines and hydrocarbons. the author notes that there is almost total impunity for environmental crimes, as evidenced by the lack of cases on the subject in the courts. yet ordinary congolese courts and tribunals also have jurisdiction in environmental matters. this study highlights some of the obstacles that prevent judges from punishing environmental offences and proposes solutions to make the fight against environmental crime effective.
