His Excellency Mark Rutte
Brussels September 25, 2015
Please find attached the Memorandum on the visit of President Paul Kagame to the Netherlands.
We the undersigned political organisations, civil society organisations and human rights defenders are writing to you to express our grave concern about the visit of President Paul Kagame, President of the republic of Rwanda to The Netherlands, from 3rd to 6th October 2015. We strongly believe that a warm welcome to President Paul Kagame would be a mockery of the international justice system and would undermine the moral authority of The Netherlands in the world and the values it holds so dearly. He should be coming to The Hague to answer questions from the International Criminal Court and not to get a red carpet reception from the Dutch authorities.
