Rwanda: 25 Years on, U.S. Taxpayers Paying Millions for Homeland Security’s Sham ‘Genocide Fugitive’ Trials in Boston

April 6, 1994 – April 6, 2019

On 6 April 1994, the Hutu presidents of Rwanda and Burundi, their prime army employees and 6 French crew members have been assassinated when surface-to-air missiles shot down the Rwandan presidential jet on strategy to Kigali airport. It’s now properly established that the assassination plot that decapitated the Hutu-led governments was executed by Rwanda’s now president and strongman-for-life, then Main Basic Paul Kagame, commander of the terrorist Tutsi-Hima military that invaded Rwanda from Uganda.

Now, 25 years later, whereas Kagame and the Rwanda genocide business commemorate the 25th anniversary of the so-called 100 days of genocide, U.S. taxpayers proceed to pay tens of millions of dollars for yet one more bogus asylum present trial concentrating on one other genocide survivor and fugitive from the terrorist Kagame regime. In the meantime, reporting on the trial in federal courtroom in Boston, Massachusetts, the Boston newspapers haven’t challenged the vested-interests of their quoted sources or the machinations of the Division of Homeland Safety and its Immigration & Customs Enforcement.

Jean Leonard Teganya, 46, is a needed man who has spent a lot of his grownup life making an attempt to start out over and get well from the atrocities he survived in Rwanda.

Teganya was a medical scholar who volunteered on the hospital in Butare, Rwanda within the spring of 1994, treating the sick and wounded when no docs or nurses have been out there (because of the giant numbers of casualties).

Mr. Teganya was additionally a sufferer of the violence in 1994, rescued by fellow college students after being attacked by an armed militia in Butare. He fled Butare round 20 June 1994, after killings intensified within the area in parallel with the arrival of the Rwandan Patriotic Military.

In June of 1994 Mr. Teganya fled Rwanda through the mass exodus of some 2 million Rwandans to neighboring nations. Mr. Teganya ended up in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) at Nyakavogo, a (principally) Hutu refugee camp that in September of 1996 was attacked by Paul Kagame and the Rwandan Patriotic Military (RPA) in violation of worldwide humanitarian regulation.

A trial in a federal courtroom in Boston commenced towards Jean Leonard Teganya on 11 March 2019. Pictures of the scars of his wounds have been proven to the Boston jury by the attorneys from the general public defenders workplace which are representing him.

Witnesses for the prosecution, flown in from Rwanda for the trial in Boston, swore underneath oath that Mr. Teganya wore the hats, shirts and scarves of the ‘extremist Hutu’ events. Prosecution witnesses described in nice element the insignia that was on Mr. Teganya’s hat: a machete and gear. He helped commit genocide, the U.S. prosecutors and immigration brokers in Boston stated, then tried to say asylum.

‘The defendant had an issue,’ Assistant US Lawyer Scott L. Garland informed a jury in US District Courtroom in Boston throughout opening arguments within the trial towards Teganya,’ reported the Boston Globe. ‘His drawback was that his software for asylum can be denied if the US came upon what he had executed in Rwanda, as a result of persecutors can’t declare asylum.’

Greater than two weeks of hearings later, witnesses for the protection described Mr. Teganya as an amicable, quiet man dedicated to serving to different individuals. They described an clever, delicate and caring fellow scholar who didn’t take part in get together politics. Greater than 15 witness said beneath oath that Jean Leonard Teganya by no means wore the signature clothes of the extra radical Hutu political events.

The place and the way have been the Rwandan prosecution witnesses to Mr. Teganya’s alleged crimes recognized and who recognized them? These are a number of the pivotal questions that an ICE agent on the witness stand at Mr. Teganya’s trial was unable or unwilling to reply with conviction.

Did the ICE agent commit perjury?

Hutu, Dying Brokers, Have develop into Its Victims

Because the cataclysm unfolded in Rwanda in 1994, the western media reported from behind the RPA strains. The RPA narrative turned the mainstream institution narrative (that is still the predominant one): Tutsis as victims, Hutus as killers.

When the United Nations Excessive Fee for Refugees particular rapporteur Robert Gersony reported on the RPA’s widespread killing of scores of hundreds of Hutu inside Rwanda, the report was squashed: all Hutus have been killers, all Tutsis have been victims. Gersony went silent and stayed silent.

As a survivor of the mass atrocities and genocide that occurred in his house nation of Rwanda in the course of the civil struggle, Jean Leonard Teganya was considered one of tens of millions of harmless non-combatant Rwandans uprooted and pushed from his homeland.

Pressured to flee on the age of 21, from one nation to a different, he was for all sensible functions a fugitive from injustice (by the hands of the RPA), pressured to outlive or perish beneath the fixed nagging reminiscence of the horrors that he witnessed and the specter of arrest and persecution by the present regime in Rwanda.

His actual crimes? He’s a Hutu. He’s an mental. He’s a survivor. He had a U.S. authorities issued work allow and (for over two years) he was working at a prestigious college.

Mr. Teganya persevered find a brand new residence, constructing a brand new life, elevating a household.

And the worst crime of all? Jean Leonard Teganya was on the trail of gaining asylum in the USA of America.

When president Paul Kagame and his Directorate of Army Intelligence in Rwanda discovered that Mr. Teganya was legally employed as a laboratory technician on the Massachusetts Institute of Know-how in Cambridge Massachusetts, and that Mr. Teganya was about to realize authorized U.S. residency standing by way of the formal immigration course of, they set about manufacturing a case towards him.

The RPA slaughtered lots of of hundreds of unarmed non-combatant Rwandans–principally Hutu ladies, youngsters and elders–and in addition uncountable Congolese residents in the course of the Rwandan and Ugandan invasion of Zaire in 1996 and 1997.

On the peak of the slaughter in Zaire, the New York Occasions and different main worldwide media revealed story after hand-wringing story that principally manufactured consent for the continued genocide towards the unarmed harmless Hutus in Zaire.

The New York Occasions article of 13 April 1997 that principally gave the inexperienced mild for the continued massacres of harmless non-combatant refugees in Zaire–principally ladies, youngsters and the aged.

On 1 October 2010, the 20th anniversary of the RPA invasion of Rwanda (1 October 1990), the United Nations revealed an in depth Mapping Report of atrocities within the DR Congo. The Mapping Report established clear patterns and documented atrocities declared to incorporate conflict crimes, crimes towards humanity and genocide dedicated by the RPA and its allies.

Zaire (the Congo) was not the primary place that Hutu refugees skilled massacres, torture and unimaginable brutality by the hands of the RPA. The Hutu individuals additionally skilled atrocities of this unimaginable and unprecedented inhuman scale, magnitude and character through the 4 years of terrorism and conflict prosecuted by the RPA in Rwanda.

Jean Leonard Teganya’s flight from Rwanda in 1994 led him from Zaire to India to Canada.

In accordance with the ICE press launch of four August 2017, Jean Leonard Teganya was arrested in Massachusetts on that date however the press launch doesn’t disclose the complete circumstances of context of Mr. Teganya’s standing in the USA, or his employment at MIT:

Jean Leonard Teganya, 46, was charged with one rely of immigration fraud and one rely of perjury. Teganya made his first look in federal courtroom in Boston on Friday afternoon.

As alleged in courtroom paperwork, roughly 800,000 individuals have been murdered in the course of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. Previous to and through the Rwandan genocide, Teganya was a medical scholar and medical trainee on the Butare hospital in Butare, Rwanda. A number of witnesses current in Butare in the course of the genocide described Teganya as lively within the political social gathering of the genocidal regime, the MRND, and its militia, and said that he actively participated within the persecution of Tutsis, the group that was largely focused in the course of the genocide.

Based on courtroom paperwork, Teganya left Rwanda in mid-July 1994, and traveled to Congo, India, after which Canada. In 1999, Teganya utilized for immigration advantages in Canada. Canadian authorities twice decided that Teganya was not entitled to these advantages, and ordered his deportation as a result of he had been complicit in atrocities dedicated on the Butare hospital in the course of the genocide. After 15 years of litigation, Teganya evaded the order of deportation and fled throughout the border into america. On Aug. three, 2014, Teganya was encountered strolling on foot after he crossed from Canada into Houlton, Maine. Teganya was taken into custody and later made false statements on paperwork submitted to U.S. authorities by failing to reveal the extent of his affiliations and actions with the MRND and Hutu extremists.

Should you have been to learn solely what was written about Jean Leonard Teganya by the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald within the years, months and weeks that preceded the trial, or the tales that appeared after the trial started on 11 March 2019 and earlier than closing arguments have been heard on three April 2019, you’d be satisfied that Jean Leonard Teganya is a monster of human being able to probably the most sadistic violence.

“Asylum trial portrayed a monster. Protection goals to vary the narrative,” reads Maria Cramer’s Boston Globe article of two April 2019.

Regardless of the tales’ leads, most of those articles shortly spin off into the never-never land of established lies, false accusations and manufactured proof which are peculiar to Rwanda genocide asylum trials held in the USA and Canada over the previous 20 years.

Just like the choose group of Kagame brokers and regime insiders that peddle them, these falsehoods, techniques and methodologies of oppression have turn out to be the staple mechanisms and instruments of strong-arm long-arm authoritarianism used to succeed in outdoors Rwanda and silence, terrorize and extradite (from the U.S., Canada, U.Okay., Netherlands, and so on.) any Rwandan that in any approach challenges the Rwandan regime.

When all else fails, there’s all the time the RPA assassination program.

In March 2019, Paul Kagame publicly and unapologetically bragged concerning the necessity and righteousness of the assassination of former RPA/RPF cadre member Seth Sendashonga–assassinated by RPA brokers in Nairobi Kenya within the late 1990’s.

The Rwanda Genocide Business

On the U.S. aspect, working for the dictatorship in Rwanda, and preserving tabs on Mr. Teganya from the second he entered the U.S. in his quest for asylum, crossing the U.S.-Canadian border in Maine in August 2014, was Brian Andersen, a particular agent with U.S. Division of Homeland Safety (DHS), Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE), Human Rights Violators and Warfare Crimes Unit.

Brian Anderson testified at Jean Leonard Teganya’s trial in late March 2019, and he’s cited by the Boston Globe with none due journalistic diligence or perhaps a modicum of investigative reporting to vet or uncover the reality about Anderson’s historical past and practices used to seek out supposed genocidaire fugitives.

“Brian Andersen, a particular agent for the Division of Homeland Safety, which investigated the case, testified that his staff discovered the witnesses in Rwanda and established contact with them,” wrote Maria Cramer, for the Boston Globe on 1 April 2019.

No April idiot’s joke, what the Globe didn’t report is how particular agent Mr. Andersen has labored with the Kagame regime to hunt, body and persecute many Rwandan Hutus, survivors of the cataclysm of 1994.

Particular agent Andersen has been concerned in a minimum of 4 earlier excessive profile however bogus Rwanda genocide asylum instances, two of those in Boston, one in Manchester New Hampshire, and one in Utah.

Skilled witnesses for the prosecution in a number of of those instances have included Dr. Phil Clark, a British educational at London’s Faculty for Oriental and African Research (SOAS), Zachary Kaufman, a tutorial on the Kennedy Faculty of Authorities, and Rony Zachariah, a physician with Medecines Sans Frontieres (Docs With out Borders) who was current in Rwanda for a brief spell earlier than being evacuated in the course of the atrocities of April 1994.

Every of those three specialists has made a profession out of whitewashing the crimes of the Kagame regime via publishing, public talking, and/or testifying at one-sided Rwanda genocide tribunals or asylum hearings.

Dr. Phil Clark has been discredited by his personal friends within the worldwide educational group. Clark has for a few years maintained pleasant relations with Kagame and peddled the RPA narrative in full disregard of proof of the RPA’s crimes on the contrary; Clark’s tight relations with Kigali recommend some vital monetary or materials reward for serving to to unfold the propaganda of the regime.

Within the October 2017 immigration trial of Prudence Kantengwa adjudicated by Federal Immigration Decide Sanchez, federal prosecutor Mary Kelley succeeded in getting Dr. Phil Clark certified as an skilled: the immigration decide dismissed Clark’s direct ties to the Kagame regime. Dr. Clark testified by videoconferencing from London; he was allowed to seek advice from his notes, even search the Web–whereas beneath oath and on the digital witness stand–to buttress his testimony.

Witnesses for the protection have been required to seem in Boston in individual, and Decide Sanchez disallowed Rwanda scholar Dr. Susan Thomson as an skilled witness for the protection, claiming that Dr. Thomson’s testimony can be duplicative of points addressed by Dr. Phil Clark. In truth, based mostly on her a number of extremely crucial evaluations of the genocide textual content edited by Dr. Phil Clark and Dr. Zachary Kaufman (see under), Dr. Susan Thomson would probably have provided testimony in robust contradiction to the prosecution’s skilled witness Dr. Phil Clark.

Protection witnesses who did seem on the Kantengwa hearings weren’t allowed to surf the Web, check with paperwork or books, and even entry their private notes whereas giving testimony.

Federal prosecutor Mary Kelly harassed the 2 main protection witnesses (Keith Harmon Snow and Claude Gatebuke) that Immigration Decide Sanchez did qualify as specialists. Ms. Kelley tried to intimidate, stifle or utterly silence the witnesses.

Within the Kantengwa case, Immigration Decide Sanchez present in favor of Rwanda and its collaborator, the U.S. Division of Homeland Safety, and thereby set the stage for the extradition and deportation to Rwanda of Prudence Kantengwa.

Within the attraction temporary filed by Kantengwa’s protection attorneys (William Joyce, “Temporary in Help of an Attraction of an Immigration Decide’s Choice,” filed in Falls Church Virginia, A 098 277 297) the attraction lawyer explicitly flagged the unprofessional and immature conduct of federal prosecutor Mary Kelley, each within the context of her hysterical outbursts and harassment of the 2 certified protection specialists and within the context of Prudence Kantengwa’s preliminary immigration trial adjudicated by U.S. Federal Decide Klein.

Decide Klein, who initially heard Ms. Kantengwa’s case, famous for the report in her written opinion the DHS trial lawyer’s [Mary Kelley’s] lack of respect for the courtroom and unnecessarily combative questioning of Ms. Kantengwa and her witnesses. Tr. #1 at 1242 (“I would like whoever evaluations this case to take heed to the tone of this trial lawyer [Mary Kelley] all through this case.”); id. at 1250 (Decide Klein to lawyer Kelley: “…it will get to the shortage of respect that you’ve for this Courtroom…”); IJ Klein Dec. at 48 (“On numerous events throughout cross-examination, DHS counsel’s tone towards the respondent was accusatory and aggressive.”).

This aggressive questioning continued in Ms. Kantengwa’s hearings earlier than Decide Sanchez, partially resulting in the reticence of witnesses to answer questioning…(DHS accusing Ms. Kantengwa of violating and ICTR sequestration order)…(DHS likening Ms. Kantengwa to a Holocaust denier)…(DHS accusing Mr. Gatebuke of misrepresenting his id)…(DHS accusing Mr. Gatebuke of getting a checking account within the Caymans)…(DHS evaluating Mr. Snow to Adolph Hitler)…(bond counsel for Ms. Kantengwa to DHS: “I don’t know why your [sic] harassing [the respondent].”) The top results of this very aggressive and probably inappropriate line of questioning plus the investigator [ICE special agent Brian Andersen] operating out and in of the courtroom room led to an environment of intimidation each to the specialists and to the respondent.

Although a seasoned Decide from one other courtroom area, Decide Sanchez was newly appointed to the Immigration Courts and the trial of america v. Prudence Kantengwa was one of many first immigration instances he heard.

Ms. Kantengwa’s appeals lawyer additionally famous the battle that arose within the courtroom when a protection witness refused to disclose his sources. Protection professional [Keith Harmon Snow] testified that he had interviewed a Rwandan genocide survivor who had witnessed crimes towards humanity and who was himself the survivor of extreme and inhuman types of torture dedicated by the Rwandan Patriotic Military. Decide Sanchez requested the professional [Snow] to disclose the identify of witness/sufferer and when the skilled repeatedly refused to call the supply or present to the Courtroom any video or audio recordings of stated sufferer’s assertion, Decide Sanchez dominated that the skilled’s [Snow’s] opinions on torture in Rwanda be stricken from the report.

In his determination, Decide Sanchez afforded much less weight to the skilled’s [Snow’s] testimony on the grounds that he was “non-responsive to DHS questioning” and he refused to offer the names of sources to the Courtroom upon demand.

Through the trial, lawyer William Joyce, the protection counsel for Prudence Kantengwa, strenuously objected to the requirement that specialists require names of sources, notably given the presence within the courtroom of the ICE agent — Brian Andersen — who carried out an investigation in Rwanda of Ms. Kantengwa and her sister Beatrice Munyenyezi.

The appeals lawyer additionally famous within the Kantengwa attraction that:

Actually, there’s a critical query as as to if the ICE agent [Brian Andersen] sitting on the [prosecution] desk who was additionally operating out and in of the courtroom and offering info to authorities counsel was trying to intimidate Mr. Snow. In reality, the respondent’s counsel requested an off the document dialogue to debate what might be thought-about attainable intimidation in the direction of Mr. Snow.

The tactic utilized by Mary Kelley and Brian Andersen of concentrating on harmless Rwandans who confirmed up at hearings in help of different defendants or respondents, or who’ve been named or recognized in immigration hearings, isn’t with out precedent, as famous above.

Dr. Zachary Kaufman, who’s Dr. Phil Clark’s educational and editorial colleague, has additionally maintained a decent relationship with the Kagame regime, successfully serving as one among Kagame’s employed weapons. Dr. Clark’s relationship includes materials and monetary rewards in trade for whitewashing the regime and getting access to the nation and the largess (and privileges) secured by the legal RPA cadres and their unlawful networks in Rwanda and Congo.

Paul Kagame has quite a few occasions been invited (and appeared) as speaker on the Harvard College Kennedy Faculty of Authorities the place Kaufman and genocide skilled and stateswoman Samantha Energy each have deep historic and present ties. Like Clark and Kaufman’s publications, Samantha Energy’s publications on ‘genocide in Rwanda’ are laden with inaccuracies, omissions, distortions and selective truths.

Clark and Kaufman revealed an edited quantity titled After Genocide (2009) that was criticized by Dr. Susan Thomson, a Rwanda scholar whose skilled work and vocal criticisms of the regime result in her being declared persona non grata in Rwanda. Thomson and different students additionally signed a public letter criticizing Dr. Phil Clark’s work and his ties to the Rwandan authorities. Thomson’s dislike of the Cark/Kaufman ebook was so robust as to impress her to write down not one however two e-book critiques that have been subsequently revealed in educational journals.

The preface of After Genocide was written by Paul Kagame and, in addition to a couple of chapter contributions by Clark and Kaufman (and a set of extra trustworthy and professional educational chapters), there’s additionally a chapter by one other of Paul Kagame’s main employed weapons, the English-speaking propagandist Tom Ndahiro.

Recall that the Tutsi aristocrats and their Ugandan brethren who invaded Rwanda have been English audio system, whereas the Tutsi that suffered the genocidal onslaught in 1994 have been French audio system. Kagame and firm didn’t belief, or care about, French talking Tutsis who ‘stayed behind’ in Rwanda within the 1960s and 1970s when the Tutsi aristocrats fled, and when so many harmless Tutsis focused in retaliation for Tutsi guerrilla (Inyenzi) assaults towards Rwanda additionally fled to neighboring nations.

Zachary Kaufman was quoted in one of many fundamental Boston Globe articles about Jean Leonard Teganya. Reporter Maria Cramer introduced Kaufman into the story to offer an official authoritative and definitive quote to repudiate the protection lawyer’s demonstration that Rwandan witnesses for the prosecution are coached, and the protection staff’s demonstration of witnesses’ inconsistencies.

In the identical story, the Globe briefly mentioned the 2 different current instances that concerned Brian Andersen, Munyenyezi and Kantengwa, however particular agent Andersen just isn’t talked about in connection to these two instances. As an alternative we learn Harvard College professional Zachary Kaufman declaring the ultimate judgement on the matter:

Teganya is the third Rwandan since 2012 to face prosecution in New England for allegedly hiding hyperlinks to the genocide to acquire asylum…

In 2012, Prudence Kantengwa, a Hutu, was sentenced to 21 months for mendacity on her asylum software about her affiliation with the social gathering that orchestrated the genocide, the Nationwide Republican Motion for Democracy and Improvement.

Three years later, Kantengwa’s sister, Beatrice Munyenyezi, a Hutu mom of three who had moved to New Hampshire, was sentenced to10 years for mendacity concerning the killings and rapes she ordered as head of a roadblock in Butare, the place Tutsis have been stopped, checked for identification, and sometimes murdered on the spot.

Like Teganya, Munyenyezi argued that the witnesses towards her have been motivated by the potential for monetary compensation or by worry of the Rwandan authorities.

However different students of the genocide stated they’re skeptical that the federal government has interfered with witnesses’ testimony.

“I’ve by no means seen any proof of such,” stated Zachary Kaufman, a senior fellow at Harvard College’s John F. Kennedy Faculty of Authorities and a lecturer at Stanford Regulation Faculty. “It isn’t sudden that an accused genocide perpetrator would attempt to muster any protection they might…”

No less than one of many Rwandan witnesses for the prosecution within the Teganya trial has appeared in courtroom for greater than one of many instances ‘investigated’ by ICE particular agent Brian Andersen. Witness statements present exceptional similarity within the sorts of particulars they supply and, beneath cross-examination, within the omissions or contradictions of their testimonies.

The causes and course of whereby Rwandan Hutus have come underneath the gaze of particular agent Brian Andersen are very irregular, if not unlawful, and the 4 earlier instances are all interconnected. Mr. Andersen isn’t alone within the decision-making course of that has led to the expenditure of tens of millions of dollars for every of the 5 instances to be explored herein. Mr. Andersen’s ally in searching down and persecuting harmless Rwandans in the USA consists of Boston federal prosecutor Mary Kelley.

What the Boston Globe additionally didn’t report about particular agent Andersen is that the Federal Courtroom in Utah discovered towards the Division of Homeland Safety and the efforts of Brian Andersen, after the decide within the case realized that the investigation had been botched, the proof fabricated.

Particular agent Andersen and prosecutor Mary Kelley have deployed what has grow to be normal boiler-plate language, techniques and the manufacturing of fraudulent witnesses, within the pursuit of ‘justice’ meant to fulfill the dictatorship in Rwanda and silence its critics.

Mr. Andersen and different brokers have traveled ceaselessly to Rwanda, the place there isn’t any risk of unbiased analysis or investigation, and the place ‘witnesses’ are sometimes produced by or coerced by the Kagame regime into satisfying its pursuits of struggling the repercussions of violence towards themselves or their households. In different instances, witnesses are promised lenience on their jail sentences or monetary rewards for his or her cooperation. Some witnesses comply with testify to settle previous scores.

“Did the federal government of Rwanda play any half in choosing the witnesses?” the Boston Globe on 1 April 2019 reported that Assistant U.S. Lawyer Scott Garland requested Andersen this query beneath oath. “No, they didn’t,” Andersen replied.

In fact they did. Did particular agent Thomas Brian Andersen commit perjury?

Underneath cross-examination on the witness stand at Mr. Teganya’s trial in Boston, particular agent Brian Anderson was requested how he discovered the Rwandan witnesses who testified to Mr. Teganya’s alleged crimes. Particular agent Andersen faltered, badly.

The Boston Globe didn’t report on particular agent Brian Andersen’s poor efficiency beneath cross-examination.

Brian Andersen dedicated perjury, and it isn’t the primary time. What occurred in Utah?

Lastly, after listening to some truthful testimonies by protection witnesses, and underneath the byline of reporter Laura Crimaldi, the Boston Globe started waking up and reporting about Jean Leonard Teganya’s character and the ordeal he survived with higher accuracy and depth.

Throughout a lot of the 100-day Rwandan genocide in 1994, Jean Leonard Teganya stated, crowds of victims assembled every day outdoors the educating hospital in Butare — overwhelming medical employees with the severity of their wounds.

A month into the violence, Teganya, a Hutu after which a third-year medical scholar, stated he, too, turned a sufferer. Attackers beat him over the top and slashed his leg and ankle with a machete in a secluded space close to his dormitory, he stated.

Answering questions from his protection lawyer for about three hours, Teganya delved into his life story for the jury, discussing his Tutsi mom, his schooling at a Catholic seminary and medical faculty, and the chaos on the hospital in Butare, the nation’s second-largest metropolis.

Paul Kagame Terrorism Inc.

Whereas Jean Leonard Teganya was serving to the sick and wounded in Butare, and all through the 4 yr conflict, the Rwandan Patriotic Military (RPA) was perpetrating large struggle crimes and crimes towards humanity towards anybody of their warpath. From 1990 by way of 1993, the RPA’s scorched earth coverage decimated complete villages in northern Rwanda, and that is the place the RPA started its sluggish march to overcome territory throughout Rwanda. Because the RPA continued its regular conflict of terrorism, tons of of hundreds of refugees have been uprooted from houses and villages, pressured to develop into refugees in their very own nation.

Northern Rwanda is an space of the nation the place the plenty–principally Hutu, but in addition some Tutsis and Twa–shared a collective historical past of generations of utmost violence and injustice suffered by the hands of the Tutsi aristocracy that when dominated the dominion from central Rwanda.

Paul Kagame and the opposite Tutsi guerrilla invaders from Uganda have been raised on tales of how their noble Tutsi ancestors have been the benevolent benefactors of the Rwandan plenty. The plenty on this case included the predominant Hutu inhabitants of over 80-90%, with between 10 and 10% Tutsi, and about 1% Twa. The ethnic classes tackle little which means when one begins to grasp the character of the Tutsi aristocracy, their client-patron relations, methods of reward and punish, shifting allegiances and alliances.

The RPA was backed by highly effective overseas allies, and their atrocities have been whitewashed by the worldwide media and the teachers which have all the time peddled the Tutsis as victims narrative. This narrative was constructed largely by the human rights institution, following the lead of the London-based non-government group African Rights.

From 1990 on, RPA terror cells started infiltrating Kigali, the capital, and all different areas of Rwanda, and with them got here atrocities that have been incessantly blamed on the Habyarimana authorities. These included assassinations, massacres and disappearances. By March 1993, Rwanda’s internally displaced individuals (IDPs) inhabitants exceeded a million individuals.

Hungry, homeless, out of labor and cash, struggling horrible trauma, despair and the unhappiness and grief of getting misplaced relations whose lives (and deaths) have been additional defiled by the lack of survivors to property attend to burials and burial customs. The RPA practiced a scorched earth coverage. They didn’t need to should administer a territory or cope with native populations. The RPA displaced individuals and villages, shelled IDP camps, machine gunned large crowds of folks that they first lured into public areas, after which they marched on. They killed some captives, buried them in mass graves, incinerated them in hugs ovens, baked them to dying in tractor-trailer delivery containers, bulldozed them into the forests, and used survivors as porters to move ammunition, dig trenches, prepare dinner their meals, function their sexual slaves, they usually often shot them in the long run regardless of.

Because the RPA occupation of Rwanda continued, the Hutu majority authorities of Juvenal Habyarimana was framed for genocide towards Tutsis in Rwanda as early as 1993, whereas the RPA loved growing authority, power-sharing and impunity for the horrible and widespread atrocities that have been being dedicated in broad daylight, underneath cowl of night time, in villages, in prefectures, throughout the nation within the type of focused assassinations and different soiled tips. Educated at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Paul Kagame was schooled in artwork of ruthless, deadly, modern guerrilla insurgency.

Racketeering? Perjury? Conspiracy?

It is very important first understand that particular agent Brian Andersen apparently has some sort of particular mission to seek out, arrest and extradite anybody that the Kagame regime accuses of participation in genocide.

One in every of Mr. Andersen’s fellow Hutu hunter’s is the federal prosecutor Mary Kelley, additionally based mostly out of Boston Massachusetts.

Kelley and Andersen labored collectively to border, arrest, prosecute and imprison Prudence Kantengwa (Boston, MA) and Beatrice Munyenyezi (Manchester, New Hampshire) the sisters of Jean Marie Vianney Higiro.

Paul Kagame has been making an attempt to get his palms on Jean Marie Vianney Higiro since Higiro fled Rwanda in 1994. The previous director of the RWandan Workplace of Info (ORINFOR) through the Habyarimana regime, Higiro and his daughter, a U.S. citizen, have been evacuated from Rwanda on 7 April 1994 by U.S. marines who escorted them to Bujumbura, Burundi, after which flew them to Nairobi Kenya on path to the USA.

The trial of Beatrice Munyenyezi was additionally fraught with irregularities. Considered one of these was the prosecution’s introduction of previously extremely categorised satellite tv for pc pictures taken by U.S. intelligence reconnaissance satellites throughout flyovers of Rwanda in June 1994. These photographs have been launched by a Pentagon analyst. Their existence had by no means beforehand been disclosed.

In his opening statements in a Harmony, New Hampshire (USA) courthouse on February 23, 2012, federal prosecutor John Capin launched the U.S. authorities’s trial towards a 41 year-old Rwandan so-called ‘genocide fugitive’ by wielding satellite tv for pc pictures purportedly displaying the street blocks the place she “commanded extremist Hutu militia and ordered the rapes and killings of Tutsi” in Rwanda in 1994.

In a exceptional improvement, that is the primary time within the historical past of the ‘Rwanda genocide’ trials or associated Rwanda asylum hearings the place Pentagon satellite tv for pc pictures have been produced as proof, and the primary time that the existence of satellite tv for pc pictures taken over Rwanda in the course of the so-called ‘100 days of genocide’ has ever been verified.

Later within the Munyenyezi trial the U.S. prosecutors produced a ‘Pentagon analyst’ who testified concerning the satellite tv for pc pictures. The Pentagon analyst was Mr. Eric R. Benn, Technical Government, Evaluation and Manufacturing Directorate, Nationwide Geospatial-Intelligence Company (NGA). The images launched into the general public document embrace very excessive decision photographs shot over Rwanda in Might, June and July of 1994.

Beneath cross-examination in the course of the Munyenyezi trial, the Pentagon analyst admitted that different photographs–that may have exonerated the accused–existed, however after a rapidly organized courtroom recess the analyst modified his story declaring that no such photographs existed.

“My sister and her attorneys have been denied entry to exculpatory proof that consists of satellite tv for pc photograph taken in April 1994.” Jean Marie Vianney Higiro has watched as his sisters have been framed and makes an attempt have been made to border him. “The pictures that the Pentagon submitted to the courtroom have been taken in June, and they don’t present any roadblocks. The protection lawyer for Beatrice requested if there have been pictures taken in April [1994] as a result of that’s once they [prosecution] stated the roadblocks have been there. The gentleman from the Pentagon stated sure these pictures existed. Then there was a break within the trial. When the trial resumed the gentleman stated the pictures didn’t exist. These pictures [April and early May] would have proven that there have been no roadblocks when my sister was allegedly checking ID playing cards. They have been denied exculpatory proof.”

Declassified Pentagon pictures purportedly displaying the situation of (nonexistent) road-blocks in Butare that have been produced within the case of United States v. Prudence Kantengwa.

Brian Andersen performed some position in advancing the false story of roadblocks in Butare, the place Beatrice Munyenyezi was alleged to have been checking IDs to single out Tutsis to be raped or killed, and he thus performed a task in framing Beatrice Munyenyezi.

On June 22, 2010 a Search and Seizure Warrant was permitted by the U.S. District Courtroom in New Hampshire for the aim of invading the Manchester N.H. house of Beatrice Munyenyezi.

The warrant was based mostly on the affidavit of Thomas Brian Andersen, Jr., the identical ICE Particular Agent concerned within the case of Jean Leonard Teganya. In his affidavit, Andersen distilled the Hutu/Tutsi battle in Rwanda down to some important particulars that helped to border Beatrice Munyenyezi as a genocidaire.

When the story of Munyenyezi’s arrest was reported in Boston Journal, ICE particular agent Brian Andersen was the hero and Beatrice Munyenyezi was “The Monster Subsequent Door.”

Beatrice Munyenyezi claimed she was a refugee from the Rwandan genocide,” wrote Boston Journal. “Federal agent Brian Andersen suspected she was somebody much more sinister.

Compounding the injustice towards Jean Marie Vianney Higiro and his household, ICE brokers had Prudence Kantengwa arrested and tried for perjury based mostly on the non-existent roadblocks story. When ICE brokers interviewed Kantengwa, they claimed, she didn’t point out the roadblocks in Butare that turned the pivotal (although falsified) proof towards Beatrice Munyenyezi.
