Excellency, Mr. President of the United States of America

Re: President Paul Kagame’s criminal record, human rights abuse practices and dictatorship

Your Excellency Mr. President:

Rwandan opposition political parties and civil society organizations operating in the US are very thankful to you, President Obama, for wanting to engage African Heads of states on matters of mutual interest. However, the same organizations invite the US Government to take a hard look on the criminal record of President Paul Kagame of Rwanda, his human rights abuse practices and his dictatorship against the Rwandan people, which are not consistent with American values and ideals. The ultimate goal is to avoid getting America’s image tainted abroad by its association with Kagame’s criminal enterprise.

Plea to stop attempt to deport Rwandan Refugees and government critics living in the Netherlands

Re: Plea to stop attempt to deport Rwandan Refugees and government critics living in the Netherlands

Your Excellency,

We, the undersigned, send this letter to your Excellency, to express our deep concerns for the security of many Rwandan refugees who have sought asylum in the Netherlands. This urgent call by the leaders of Rwandan opposition groups FDU-Inkingi, Rwanda National Congress (RNC), Parti Social-Imberakuri, Amahoro People’s Congress, PDR-Ihumure and PDP-Imanzi is based on unrelenting threats to deport to their home country, without any due process, many Rwandan refugees accused of acts of genocide. We believe that the decision of Madam Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza (Chair, FDU-Inkingi) and Me Bernard Ntaganda (Founder and Chair, PS-Imberakuri) to take part in the presidential elections in 2010 and the subsequent flawed judicial process that they faced, should be an eye opener to the Netherlands authorities.
