Fresh sources confirm to AfroAmerica Network that despite recent denials by the Rwandan Government, several military leaders from the Tutsi ethnic minority leading Rwanda are on a secret INTERPOL list of wanted criminals.
They were indicted by the Spanish Judiciary system for crimes against humanity, war crimes, and genocide committed in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The arrest warrants issued by Interpol target key military officials including the current Minister of Defense, General James Kabarebe, the retired General Sam Kanyemera Kaka, Lt General Caesar Kayizari, the current Rwandan Army Chief of Staff, Colonel Dan Gapfizi, General Rubagumya Gacinya and several other military officers.
Some of these individuals were on the list of those to accompany the
Rwandan president during his upcoming trip to France this September 2011 but were refused visa by the French Embassy in Kigali to avoid diplomatic incidents and embarrassment if they were to be arrested once on the French soil. France, like most Western countries, is under legal obligations regarding the Spanish indictments and is required to execute the INTERPOL warrants.
The United States, South Africa, and the United Nations have on several occasions had to take preventive measures to avoid such diplomatic embarrassment (see our article General Paul Kagame’s Aides Refused Visas for the Visit to France here).
