    Sarkozy visit should give the genocidaires sleepless nights


admission by French President Nicolas Sarkozy that “serious errors of
judgment” were made by his country in relation to the 1994 Genocide
against the Tutsi, opens a new chapter in the diplomatic relations
between the two countries. Sarkozy, the first French leader to
visit Rwanda since the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, visiting the
Gisozi Genocide Memorial Centre, where hundreds of thousands of the
Genocide victims are laid to rest, is an indication of the political
will on the part of his government to make amends with Rwandans. It
was very important for Rwandans to hear the French President declare
that the perpetrators of the Genocide should be brought to book.  Because,
as he made this powerful statement, dozens of Rwandans indicted by the
National Prosecution over their role in the Genocide, are freely
roaming the streets of various cities in France. His statement should
indeed give the genocidaires sleepless nights. Much as he
insisted that the judiciary works independently, the support of his
government in that process would go a long way to ensure that the
judiciary does its work diligently.  Indeed, the President of
France could use his country’s weight in the European Union to call for
the arrest of other fugitives leaving in various countries in Europe.
