US Failure To Honor Red Notice Justus Majyambere: Repercussions Likely

Sofar US sources have failed to confirm the conflicting reports of Justus Majyambere's arrest and release.

A blog claims to have spoken to Justus Majyambere at his home in Kigali who said:
"he went to the US and returned safely and had not been stopped by anyone while in Amsterdam, Detroit or Kansas."
That means both the US and The Netherlands could have possibly failed to honor a red notice, provisional arrest request, or
extradition request.

This story is getting really interesting considing that Wikileaks of US Embassy cables make it clear failure to honor a red notice in this case would be considered a serious problem.

Justus Majyambere is not only one of the 40 Rwandan officers sought by Spanish justice, in addition he is also one of the 15 that are wanted for the murder of nine Spanish citizens. This means that if the US failed to honor a red notice in this case, it could have serious repercussions:

"Fifteen of the forty indictees
(#'s 3, 5, 6, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 23, 24, 29)
are wanted for the murder of the nine Spanish citizens."

"It would be a serious problem if the USG failed
to honor a red notice, provisional arrest request, or
extradition request for one of the 15 indictees sought for
murdering the Spaniards, especially with respect to other
ongoing bilateral extradition and judicial matters."
