Rwanda

Into a new age: The feeling of community

DEMOCRACY: The growing skepticism of the authorities is a global trend. Can an increased degree of civic participation and attention to shared responsibility restore trust?

Rwanda's calm after the storm

Christophe Cotteret: Inkontanyi

: Inkontanyi by Christophe Cotteret is an in-depth and detailed film about the background to the internal conflict in Rwanda – from Western colonial times to the present day.

Lies can get him sentenced to life

: Norway will now extradite genocide accused Eugene Nkuranyabahizi to Rwanda, where he risks life imprisonment. Ny Tid can document that witness after witness speaks untruth, yet they are believed by both Kripos and the Norwegian judiciary.

Wrongly accused of genocide?

: Norway will extradite Eugene Nkuranyabahizi to Rwanda, who accuses him of genocide. Now Ny Tid can reveal that several of the witnesses say they gave false testimonies.

Do not want to comment on the rendition

: The Ministry of Justice and Emergency Preparedness does not wish to comment on the decision to extradite Eugene Nkuranyabahizi. Kripos points out that three courts have concluded that there is good reason to suspect.  

Politically motivated judgment

: An opposition politician challenged Paul Kagame in the presidential election. In the end, Victoire Ingabire was sentenced to 15 years in prison for "genocide ideology". A number of independent journalists have also been imprisoned in recent years.

"They wanted his property"

: Norwegian authorities extradited Charles Bandora to Rwanda, where he was sentenced to 30 years in prison – despite several witnesses saying he was innocent and that they had been pressured to lie.

On the way to genocide?

: Norwegian authorities must decide what role they want to play in Burundi: Violence is increasing, and trends from the massacres in neighboring Rwanda are repeated. The West is also responsible for the increase in ethnic conflicts.
