The West must do more to apprehend Genocide suspects
Rwandans on Saturday started the week-long commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.
It is 18 years since the Genocide, however, the number of Genocide suspects freely living in Western capitals is appallingly high.
Rwanda has issued hundreds of indictments and arrest warrants to Western governments to ensure genocide fugitives are apprehended, but few or in some cases none have been acted upon.
The Genocide is not a Rwandan issue as it affects the whole humanity.
It is not only an insult to the Rwandan people that the suspects are free, but also a show of double standards on the part of the West who will stop at nothing to ensure criminals who committed acts of terror on their soil are brought to justice, wherever they may be.
As President Kagame pointed out in his address at the commemoration event, it is as if Rwandan lives are of less value. This attitude is unacceptable and must be rejected by all means.
Those who harbor Genocide suspects must acknowledge the magnitude of the crime allegedly committed and should do everything to ensure they are brought to justice.
