Le conseil de sécurité au chevet de la RDC: Mais sachant que l'ONU, de concert avec les copains de l'UE cherchent encore à promouvoir un dialogue entre le pouvoir à KGL et les FDLR, pendant qu'on presse Joseph Kabila de pousser sa population à reclamer ce dialogue là, est-on vraiment en train de chercher des remedes pour le malade RDC, ou de compliquer sa maladie?

On se fait entendre de la manière que l'on peut, surtout si l'on a été tellement muselé. Juste souhaiter une bonne chance à cette nouvelle démarche:

A l'Assemblée Nationale, on se chamaille toujours, mais avec quels resultats et pour quelles raisons d'ailleurs?

Canada convicts Rwandan of genocide

A court in Canada has found a former Rwandan militia leader guilty of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide for his role in murders, torture and rape during the slaughter of ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus.

Desire Munyaneza could face life imprisonment after a Quebec Superior Court convicted him on Friday.

"Desire Munyaneza intentionally killed dozens in Butare and its surroundings that were not directly involved in the conflict, raped several women, and pillaged homes and businesses of people who also had nothing to do with the unrest," Andre Denis, the judge, said.

"As such, you have been found guilty of committing war crimes as defined under Canadian law," he said to the accused.

Munyaneza was the first person to be tried under Canada's Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes Act, which allows residents to be tried for crimes committed abroad.


Munyaneza's two-year trial heard from 66 witnesses in Canada, France, Rwanda and Tanzania.

The court was told that Munyaneza, the son of a wealthy Hutu beer distributor, set up roadblocks in southern Rwanda to select Tutsis and moderate Hutu as victims based on their ethnicity or allegiances.

One man who was imprisoned in Rwanda for his own role in the genocide testified that Munyaneza orchestrated the massacre of between 300 and 400 Tutsis in a church.

"The accused's criminal intent was demonstrated beyond a reasonable doubt, as was his culpable violence," Denis wrote in his judgement.

The UN estimates that more than 800,000 people were killed during the violence.

"I'm very happy he was found guilty. I want to thank and congratulate Canada," Caesar Gashabeze, a survivor of the genocide, said.

"We have been waiting for this."


The defence said it would appeal the conviction after repeatedly questioning the testimony of witnesses and highlighting the fact that most were unable to identify Munyaneza's prominnent facial scar.

"The evidence did not justify a conviction," Richard Perras, Munyaneza's lawyer, said.

Munyaneza was arrested in Toronto in 2005 after seeking asylum in Canada, which Canadian immigration officials rejected. He had fled to Cameroon after the genocide.

The prosecutor said that the case illustrated Canada's commitment to bringing war criminals to justice.

"The case was very challenging as it involved events dating back 15 years in a foreign country, Rwanda," Pascale Ledoux said.

Munyaneza will be sentenced in September.

As was stated earlier in this blog those war criminals residing in safe heaven in Europe or as shown in Canada, their time has elapsed. And so trying to disguise themselves or as has been shown trying to make black to white like scape goating Laurent Nkunda, time will prove who is guilty or not. The truth cannot be bent.

Mrs. Merkels love for war criminals.
Every year there is a meeting of veterans of WW2 in Mittenwald/Bavaria. Those folks belong to a unit having committed war criminals in Italy and are prosecuted in vain by Italian justice. Mrs. Merkel's state secretary Christian Schmidt holds speeches there every year.
"13.05.2008 15:56
As the rebels continue to cause chaos, President Paul Kagame is in Germany where he has
urged its government to act on the FDLR leader Dr. Ignace Murwanashyaka - now living in Bonn.
"The German government needs to address this problem," President Kagame said following a
meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.
Mrs. Merkel said Germany was looking into the issue closely, adding that some of the people
concerned were under UN travel sanction and had had their bank accounts frozen."
But recently Dr. Ignace Murwanashyaka boasted that he could not have done something wrong as he still is in control of FDLR from safe heaven Germany.
The mistery remains why does human right loving Mrs. Merkel not intervene?
