It has gradually done so. A court system was set up and a legal profession, capable of delivering justice for Rwandans was established with reforms that included abolition of the death penalty and changes to the penal code. The International Criminal Court for Rwanda, which was set up in Tanzania in1994, to try serious cases ( so far it has tried and convicted 29 of the main leaders of the genocide and there some cases on appeal or awaiting trial), has recognised this progress by asking for the first time in its history, for Rwanda's prosecutor-general to take over the case of a genocide suspect.
Also. the United Nations High Commissoner for Refugees has declared that Rwanda is safe for the remaining 100,000 or so refugees (3 million have already returned). Further the UN has asked Rwanda to house war criminals from Sierra Leone and the European Court of Human Rights as well as Sweden, Norway and Denmark have ruled in favor of extraditing genocide suspects to Rwanda. What about Canada and Mugesera?
Mugesera has waged a 15-yr. battle to avoid deportation . He is wanted on charges of incitement The latest gambit was his lawyers claiming that he risks totture if he returns, even though it is against the law to use torture in Rwanda. This is a tawdry, slanderous and even racist slur against not only a signatory of the UN Convention against torture but a nation that took great pains to avoid revenge and retribution. Lawyers have to defend their clients but sometimes in desperation they try and destroy something that is good and beneficial, something to be celebrated. Rwanda deserve better than this maliciousness. "It is simply delusional to think anyone has to fabricate a single word about the genocide. Besides a mountain of other unequivocal evidence, we now have 15 years of the international Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda documenting exactly how the genocide was carried ouy, including the full confession of the prime minister during the 100 days. No one has to fabricate anything", Gerry Caplan, an expert on Rwanda. They are using any and everything to stop the inevitable.
