James Karuhanga

I have followed some articles from Rwanda by a certain James Karuhanga. He calls himself a journalist, but his articles are pure propaganda for the Rwanda regime. It is clear that if you want to know what is really going on in Rwanda, you should read those articles. It gives you a much better picture of Rwanda, then the distortions Paul Kagame helps into the world.

What was so special about the French? Why should they have supported a revolutionary movement that invaded a sovereing country in 1990? Try to explain it in such a way that people who are not RPF supporters or family of RPF criminals who butchered the refugees in Congo can somehow understand your point.

Kigali — President Nicolas Sarkozy's chief of Staff, Claude Guéant, could have assisted Genocide suspect Dr. Eugène Rwamucyo to acquire a French resident permit, a French Online newspaper Rue89 has uncovered.

A hospital in Maubeuge, northern France, recently suspended Rwamucyo after discovering that he appeared on Interpol's wanted list in connection with the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

"Wanted by Interpol, Eugene Rwamucyo would have benefited from the support of Claude Guéant to regularise his presence in France," the Rue89 story reads.

Claude Guéant, 64, has been President Sarkozy's Chief of Staff since 2007 and is a member of the conservative, Union for a Popular Movement (UMP).

"He would have benefited from support in high places to regularize his presence in France," the paper reveals.

It is also stressed that at the time (2005) when Rwamucyo sought to acquire the resident permit, Guéant served as Sarkozy's Director of Cabinet.

Describing Rwamucyo as "a planner of massacres known by historians," the paper also highlights most of his activities during the Genocide.

Rue89 notes that after the fall of the genocidal regime, Rwamucyo went to the Ivory Coast where the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) denied him refugee status because of the allegations against him.

It notes that the fugitive's refugee request was again turned down in 2002 by the French Refugee body (OFPRA) and the Board of Appeals, at the time he was residing in France.

"Despite these damning facts, Eugene Rwamucyo enjoyed total impunity since his arrival in France. Further still he has been very active, participating in various seminars and conferences which denounce the current regime in Kigali. While campaigning for a replay of the Rwandan genocide," says the French paper.

Apart from Rwamucyo, the paper goes on to highlight other similar cases in France, including that of Sosthene Munyemana and former first lady, Agathe Kanziga Habyarimana, also suspected of being among the top masterminds of the Genocide.

France's top court - the State Council, recently snubbed her appeal for asylum but she continues to reside in the country.

Activists petition new French Justice Minister over Genocide suspects

By James Karuhanga

Email Article export article Print Article

KIGALI - Hardly a week after French President, Nicolas Sarkozy, appointed a new government, on November 14, rights groups have written to the new French minister of justice, Michel Mercier, drawing his attention on suspected Genocidaires living in France.

In the latest petition dated November 19, three international human rights groups – African Rights, the Collectif des Parties Civiles pour le Rwanda (CPCR), and REDRESS, underline that they previously tried to alert Mercier’s predecessors on the presence in France of suspects linked to the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

“We are particularly concerned by the delay in proceedings concerning the suspects present in France and the lack of resources made available to judges so that they can conduct such investigations,” reads part of the petition.
The trio requested the Minister for time to discuss their concerns.

CPCR’s head, Alain Gauthier, African Rights’ Rakiya Omaar and REDRESS’s Carla Ferstman, signed the letter which was also copied to the French president, Prime Minister Francois Fillon and new foreign minister Michele Alliot-Marie.

In the letter, they remind Mercier that on October 28, last year, his predecessor Michele Alliot-Marie announced and expressed the desire to create, in France, a unit of specialist investigators for the crimes of genocide and crimes against humanity.

This, they state, was welcomed as a sign of France’s commitment to not provide a safe haven to perpetrators of international crimes.

They argue that 20 files are currently before four judges in Paris but despite their apparent good will, the four judges, including two appointed recently, cannot juggle everything.
As revealed, in 2009, two judges requested to be excused from their other duties so that they could concentrate on the Rwandan cases but the request was denied.

They also request that, since France does not want to extradite all Genocide suspects on French soil, they should be investigated, and if necessary, be prosecuted in French courts.

“This is the only way for France to fulfil its obligations to end impunity concerning these crimes. We also demand that the Justice of France follows the example of other European countries – and establish a specialized body to support the work of judges in charge of these affairs.”

In October, the same groups urged countries, including France, Belgium, The Netherlands, UK, Zambia, Malawi, Mozambique, DRC, USA and Canada, to support and cooperate with the ICTR until all proceedings are closed and all Genocide fugitives are brought to book.

Some European countries have slowly picked up momentum against suspected masterminds of the 1994 Genocide and their accomplices

In October, Callixte Mbarushimana, the FDLR Executive Secretary was arrested by French police in response to an arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) accusing him of massive war crimes and crimes against humanity allegedly committed in the eastern DRC.

However, the rights groups and government say he also played a central role in organizing and executing the killings of the 1994 Genocide.

Like many Rwandans abroad, Paul Kagame accuses all opponents of being "genocide suspects". The new times is mouthpiece of the Kigali regime and as such not a trustworthy source of information on the great lakes and certainly not on the role of France before during and after the genocide.

You know full well that Paul Kagame himself is a sick criminal who is at least coresponsable for the suffering of millions in the great lakes region. He stands accused of gross human rights violations and possiblity acts of genocide in Congo.

Mladic and Karazic seem like innocent children in comparison to this guy.
