Rwanda To Investigate French Officers Who Facilitated The 1994 Genocide

AFRICANGLOBE - Rwanda plans to ask French authorities to allow Kigali investigators to interrogate senior French officers and politicians in connection with the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi minority. Rwanda’s Foreign Affairs Minister Louise Mushikiwabo said Kigali is no longer interested in mending relations with its former European ally and will not tolerate what she described as “judicial harassment” from France.

No Charges For French Soldiers Who Raped African Children

AFRICANGLOBE - As French investigators prepare to return to Central African Republic to look further into two-year-old accusations that French soldiers deployed in the country raping children, there is no sign of any criminal charges being laid any time soon, let alone of convictions being secured. This is despite the fact that accounts provided to UN staff by child victims and witnesses in May and June 2014, and given to French authorities in July 2014, included the names of the children and some nicknames and physical characteristics of 11 alleged perpetrators serving in France's Sangaris military mission.
