M23 Rebels: Rwanda Minister Quizzes UN “Expert” At United Nations

case http://communityvet.net/wp-admin/includes/update.php geneva; font-size: small;”>It has emerged that during a meeting at the United Nations Security Council meeting of experts held on Wednesday in New York, about it http://corcoranproductions.com/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/includes/abstracts/abstract-wc-rest-terms-controller.php United States, Hege fell short of satisfactorily explaining how several inconsistencies and fabrications of evidence found their way in the report on which some western countries based to slash aid to Rwanda.

Reports coming in now indicate that Hege struggled on every issue and at times dodged questions that needed urgent attention.

For instance, Hege had nothing to say on the fake ID allegedly picked from a Rwandan soldier Captain Saddat Janvier and fresh graves at Kanombe military facility as evidence that Kigali was backing M23 rebels in the Eastern Part of Congo.

The United Nations said in their report that Captain Saddat was an active soldier with Rwanda Defence Forces who had been recruited, trained and sent to Kivu as part of a contingent to fight Congolese troops alongside M23 rebels.

The identification card was later discovered to have glaring features of forgery such as language.

RDF soldiers’ particulars are written in English not French, as UN alleged.

Official information indicates that Captain Saddat was integrated into the FARDC as a former CNDP officer in 2009. His FARDC ID number is #166964208920.

Rwanda claims physical evidence by the UN report is scarce and includes flimsy elements such as the photograph of an RDF uniform on a headless torso, and of bullets that the experts claim must have been supplied from Rwanda even though the ammunition in question was destroyed under a regional small arms agreement in 2009.

The UN also alleged Rwanda was training recruits for M23 at Kanombe barracks yet it is common (and verifiable) knowledge that Kanombe is a garrison-type barracks that comprises living quarters; a referral military hospital also open to civilians and a cemetery,” says Mushikiwabo .

Mushikiwabo adds that it wouldn’t require any form of expertise to find out that this (Kanombe) barracks cannot host the training of recruits or any other force preparation activity.

“A simple tour of Kanombe barracks would have led the GoE to easily discard this allegation wherever they got it from,” she says.

Mushikiwabo asked the Security Council to move away from blame, based on an biased report, and support political solution of the crisis in DRC.
