Ibuka President, Prof Jean Pierre Dusingizemungu said “Genocide survivors welcome these deportations and extraditions because they are critical for justice. They are also important for national healing because there is no reconciliation without justice. We applaud this demonstration of international solidarity and trust in the fairness of the Rwandan judicial system.”

“However, other genocide perpetrators continue to live freely in different countries especially in France. These countries have to follow the example of Canada, the Netherlands and the United States, and cooperate with the government of Rwanda to bring genocide suspects to justice, whether in Rwanda or wherever they live today. To do this would uphold the dignity of the victims.”

Ibuka’s mission is to promote the welfare of survivors of the Genocide Against the Tutsi, preserve the memory of the victims, combat genocide denial and uphold justice.
