Roger Casement

a.k.a. Roger David Casement

Author Code: IRDC

Born: Sep. 1, 1864 - Sandy Cove, Dublin, Ireland

Died: Aug. 3, 1916 - London, England

Educated at the Ballymena Academy, Casement left school when he was 16 and took a job as a clerk for a Liverpool shipping company. Having traveled widely, Casement was appointed Traveling Commissioner to the Niger Court Protectorate in 1892 and entered the British Consular Service shortly thereafter. In 1895, he became the British Consul in Portugese East Africa. In 1903, he investigated reports of forced labour and abuse in the Congo a published a damning report the following year. His report led to King Leopold of Belgium relinquishing his personal holdings in the Congo and the Belgium parliament taking over administration of the country as the Belgian Congo in 1908. Casement was then consul in Brazil from 1906 to 1911. In 1910, he visited Peru and detailed the atrocities against the Putumayo Indians in a report published in 1911. For his exemplary service, he was awarded a knighthood in 1911. In 1912, he resigned from the consular service and began organizing the Irish Volunteers and, when war broke out in 1914, he tried to secure German backing for an independent Ireland. Over the next two years, he was involved in a series of intrigues to procure weapons and further German assistance for an Irish uprising. He returned to Ireland a few days before the Easter 1916 uprising and was arrested on charges of espionage and treason. Sentenced to death after a controversial trial, Casement was hanged at Pentonville Prison in London, following an unsuccessful appeal. In addition to his consular reports, Casement also produced a number of works dealing with Ireland, the First World War, some poetry and a series of diaries which were only lately verified as authentic. These works include The Crime Against Ireland (1914), Ireland, Germany and the Freedom of the Seas (1914), The Crime Against Europe (1915) and Some Poems (1916).
