Rwanda accuses France of hand in bloody genocideBy Saeed ShabazzStaff WriterUpdated Aug 21, 2008, 10:49 pmUNITED NATIONS (FinalCall.com) - Fourteen years after bloody 1994 genocide in Rwanda, a government commission recently issued a 500-page report charging senior French officials were complicit in the deaths of nearly one million Tutsis and Hutus.

The commission accuses French forces in Rwanda of crimes against humanity and of using an UN-sanctioned haven for refugees to help extremist Hutus responsible for the 100 days of mass slaughter escape justice. French soldiers are also accused of taking part in the killings and the mass rape of Tutsi refugees.France immediately condemned the report as “unacceptable” and tried to cast doubt on the commission’s objectivity, according to Agence France Presse.

A French foreign ministry spokesman told reporters in Paris that the regime in Kigali was attempting to rewrite history. He added that the French government had yet to receive the report through official channels.The report names 13 senior French politicians and 20 military officials and Agence France Presse reported Rwandan officials may make the first attempt by an African nation to extradite European nationals for war crimes.

Though the crime of genocide falls under international jurisdiction, legal experts say the Rwandan government could theoretically indict French nationals and request their extradition to Rwanda for trial.Analysts like investigative reporter Linda Melvern, author of “A People Betrayed: The Role of the West in Rwanda’s Genocide” and “Conspiracy to Murder: The Rwanda Genocide,” say pointing the finger at individual political figures in France is problematic.

Ms. Melvern appeared via telephone from London on the nationally syndicated radio show Democracy Now Aug. 6. She told the host Amy Goodman the “French policy towards Rwanda had been largely decided by the former president, Francois Mitterrand, during his second term.”France’s own inquiry in 1998 determined Mr. Mitterrand had been in overall control of the policy but was not unaccountable for what happened,

Ms. Melvern said.But, she also added, “There were French officers embedded in the elite Rwandan army units, who would have known, I am sure, what was happening. The public opening of the Mitterrand archives shows that he feared what he called a Tutsiland would be created in Rwanda and once Rwanda was lost to Anglophone influence that would be a big blow to French credibility on the continent.”Ms. Goodman told Ms. Malvern that Kenneth Roth, of Human Rights Watch, said the timing of the report was no coincidence as international attention turns to the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which meets in Tanzania.

Pressure has been mounting in international circles for the Rwanda tribunal to follow-up on accusations by two international judges, one from Spain and one from France, that call for the indictment of President Paul Kagame for alleged involvement in the death of former Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana, a Hutu.

After President Habyarimana’s plane was shot down over Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, on April 6, 1994, the genocide started.“I don’t see the release of this report as a sort of tit-for-tat, as part of a diplomatic spat. It’s far too serious for that. This is a European army being accused of human rights abuses in Africa, and I think that it needs careful consideration by international human rights groups,” Ms. Melvern responded.A French judge issued nearly a dozen warrants for members of President Kagame’s inner circle, while the Spanish judge has indicted 40 Rwandan officers on international criminal charges.

Professor Peter Erlinder, of the William Mitchell College of Law and a past president of the National Lawyers Guild, told The Final Call in an e-mail message he was surprised at the level of gullibility shown by some analysts and members of the human rights community.

These analysts and organizations swallowed the “big lie” about President Kagame wholesale, without understanding the nature of the Rwanda War, examining the factual record at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda and original, contemporaneous reports from the UN and U.S., he said.This demonstrates the manipulation of the Rwanda story to benefit a neo-colonial U.S./UK relationship with Mr. Kagame and company, said Prof. Erlinder. “The documents at the ICTR also describe a systematic cover-up of the crimes in Rwanda by the U.S. government and UN personnel, including Kofi Annan, beginning in August 1994 and continuing to present,” Mr. Erlinder charged.

One Rwanda tribunal and UN report describes how the Kagame regime is confiscating and steering the mineral resources of the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Rwanda, he said. “The Rwandan invasion of the Congo has led to a 12-year war in which nearly six million have died, although little reference is made to this in U.S. and western media. The number of civilians dying in the Congo every four months tops any number killed in Darfur, but Darfur is labeled ‘genocide,’ ” Mr. Erlinder noted.The U.S. is pushing to end the Rwanda Tribunal’s mandate and is the biggest financial contributor to the tribunal, he said.

“The U.S. wants to make it impossible to investigate and prosecute crimes by Kagame,” Mr. Erlinder charged. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda’s mandate expires in December.Some observers, speaking on condition of anonymity in United Nations corridors, said the Rwandan commission’s report is “challenging the pervasive culture of impunity now running through the veins of most western nations.

”Peter Weiss, vice president of the Center for Constitutional Rights, said the media and the justice community can become powerful voices, “if they look at the facts in the (Mucyo Commission) report, which could eventually lead to some form of accountability by France and by the French officials named in the report who are still alive.”

SUMMARY : THE TRAGIC CONSEQUENCES OF THE BRITISH BUDGET SUPPORT AND GEO-STRATEGIC AMBITIONS

United Kingdom's Proxy Wars in Africa: The Case of Rwanda and DR Congo:

The Rwandan genocide and 6,000,000 Congolese and Hutu refugees killed are the culminating point of a long UK’s battle to expand their influence to the African Great Lakes Region. UK supported Kagame’s guerrilla war by providing military support and money. The UK refused to intervene in Rwanda during the genocide to allow Kagame to take power by military means that triggered the genocide. Kagame’s fighters and their families were on the Ugandan payroll paid by UK budget support.


· 4 Heads of State assassinated in the francophone African Great Lakes Region.
· 2,000,000 people died in Hutu and Tutsi genocides in Rwanda, Burundi and RD.Congo.
· 600,000 Hutu refugees killed in R.D.Congo, Uganda, Central African Republic and Rep of Congo.
· 6,000,000 Congolese dead.
· 8,000,000 internal displaced people in Rwanda, Burundi and DR. Congo.
· 500,000 permanent Rwandan and Burundian Hutu refugees, and Congolese refugees around the world.
· English language expansion to Rwanda to replace the French language.
· 20,000 Kagame’s fighters paid salaries from the British Budget Support from 1986 to present.
· £500,000 of British taxpayer’s money paid, so far, to Kagame and his cronies through the budget support, SWAPs, Tutsi-dominated parliament, consultancy, British and Tutsi-owned NGOs.
· Kagame has paid back the British aid received to invade Rwanda and to strengthen his political power by joining the East African Community together with Burundi, joining the Commonwealth, imposing the English Language to Rwandans to replace the French language; helping the British to establish businesses and to access to jobs in Rwanda, and to exploit minerals in D.R.Congo.

Thousands of Hutu murdered by Kagame inside Rwanda, e.g. Kibeho massacres
Kagame killed 200,000 Hutus from all regions of the country, the elderly and children who were left by their relatives, the disabled were burned alive. Other thousands of people were killed in several camps of displaced persons including Kibeho camp. All these war crimes remain unpunished.The British news reporters were accompanying Kagame’s fighters on day-by-day basis and witnessed these massacres, but they never reported on this.

25,000  Hutu bodies  floated down River Akagera into Lake Victoria in Uganda.
The British irrational, extremist, partisan,biased, one-sided media and politicians have disregarded Kagame war crimes e.g. the Kibeho camp massacres, massacres of innocents Hutu refugees in DR. Congo. The British media have been supporting Kagame since he invaded Rwanda by organising the propaganda against the French over the Rwandan genocide, suppressing the truth about the genocide and promoting the impunity of Kagame and his cronies in the African Great Lakes Region. For the British, Rwanda does not need democracy, Rwanda is the African Israel; and Kagame and his guerilla fighters are heroes.The extremist British news reporters including Fergal Keane, Chris Simpson, Chris McGreal, Mark Doyle, etc. continue to hate the Hutus communities and to polarise the Rwandan society.

Kagame political ambitions triggered the genocide.

Kagame  political  ambitions triggered the genocide.
Kagame’s guerrilla war was aimed at accessing to power at any cost. He rejected all attempts and advice that could stop his military adventures including the cease-fire, political negotiations and cohabitation, and UN peacekeeping interventions. He ignored all warnings that could have helped him to manage the war without tragic consequences. Either you supported Kagame’ s wars and you are now his friend, or you were against his wars and you are his enemy. Therefore, Kagame as the Rwandan strong man now, you have to apologise to him for having been against his war and condemned his war crimes, or accept to be labelled as having been involved in the genocide. All key Kagame’s fighters who committed war crimes and crimes against humanity are the ones who hold key positions in Rwandan army and government for the last 15 years. They continue to be supported and advised by the British including Tony Blair, Andrew Mitchell MP, and the British army senior officials.

Aid that kills: The British Budget Support financed Museveni and Kagame’s wars in Rwanda and DRC.

Aid that kills: The British Budget Support  financed Museveni and Kagame’s wars in Rwanda and DRC.
Genocide propaganda and fabrications are used by the so-called British scholars, news reporters and investigative journalists to promote their CVs and to get income out of the genocide through the selling of their books, providing testimonies against the French, access to consultancy contracts from the UN and Kagame, and participation in conferences and lectures in Rwanda, UK and internationally about genocide. Genocide propaganda has become a lucrative business for Kagame and the British. Anyone who condemned or did not support Kagame’s war is now in jail in Rwanda under the gacaca courts system suuported by British tax payer's money, or his/she is on arrest warrant if he/she managed to flee the Kagame’s regime. Others have fled the country and are still fleeing now. Many others Rwandans are being persecuted in their own country. Kagame is waiting indefinitely for the apologies from other players who warn him or who wanted to help to ensure that political negotiations take place between Kagame and the former government he was fighting against. Britain continues to supply foreign aid to Kagame and his cronies with media reports highlighting economic successes of Rwanda. Such reports are flawed and are aimed at misleading the British public to justify the use of British taxpayers’ money. Kagame and his cronies continue to milk British taxpayers’ money under the British budget support. This started from 1986 through the British budget support to Uganda until now.

Dictator Kagame: No remorse for his unwise actions and ambitions that led to the Rwandan genocide.

Dictator Kagame: No remorse for his unwise actions and ambitions that led to the  Rwandan genocide.
No apologies yet to the Rwandan people. The assassination of President Juvenal Habyarimana by Kagame was the only gateway for Kagame to access power in Rwanda. The British media, politicians, and the so-called British scholars took the role of obstructing the search for the truth and justice; and of denying this assassination on behalf of General Kagame. General Paul Kagame has been obliging the whole world to apologise for his mistakes and war crimes. The UK’s way to apologise has been pumping massive aid into Rwanda's crony government and parliement; and supporting Kagame though media campaigns.

Fanatical, partisan, suspicious, childish and fawning relations between UK and Kagame

Fanatical, partisan, suspicious, childish and fawning relations between UK and Kagame
Kagame receives the British massive aid through the budget support, British excessive consultancy, sector wide programmes, the Tutsi-dominated parliament, British and Tutsi-owned NGOs; for political, economic and English language expansion to Rwanda. The British aid to Rwanda is not for all Rwandans. It is for Kagame himself and his Tutsi cronies.

This blog reports the crimes that remain unpunished and the impunity that has generated a continuous cycle of massacres in many parts of Africa. In many cases, the perpetrators of the crimes seem to have acted in the knowledge that they would not be held to account for their actions.

The need to fight this impunity has become even clearer with the massacres and genocide in many parts of Africa and beyond.

The blog also addresses issues such as Rwanda War Crimes, Rwandan Refugee massacres in Dr Congo, genocide, African leaders’ war crimes and crimes against humanity, Africa war criminals, Africa crimes against humanity, Africa Justice.

Venerating Kagame: The UK celebrate the expansion of their influence to Rwanda

Venerating Kagame: The UK celebrate the expansion of their influence to Rwanda
As planned by Kagame before he took power, all French related institutions (businesses,NGOs, schools, RFI, cultural centres) are banned and expelled from Rwanda and replaced by the British ones.The French language is banned in education, administration and businesses, and is replaced by the English language. All public and private institutions have been renamed in English. The French language has been removed from the National ID cards. Rwanda unilaterally left the Communauté économiqe des états de l'Afrique centrale to join the East African Community controlled by the UK. Next: full and unconditional admission to Commonwealth.
-The British relentless and long running battle to become the sole player and gain new grounds of influence in the francophone African Great Lakes Region has led to the expulsion of other traditional players from the region, or strained diplomatic relations between the countries of the region and their traditional friends. These new tensions are even encouraged by the British using a variety of political and economic manoeuvres.

-General Kagame has been echoing the British advice that Rwanda does not need any loan or aid from Rwandan traditional development partners, meaning that British aid is enough to solve all Rwandan problems.

-The British obsession for the English Language expansion has become a tyranny that has led to genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity, dictatorial regimes, human rights violations, mass killings, destruction of families, communities and cultures, permanent refugees and displaced persons in the African Great Lakes region.


- Rwanda, a country that is run by a corrupt clique of minority-tutsi is governed with institutional discrmination, human rights violations, dictatorship, authoritarianism and autocracy, as everybody would expect.
