A case is ongoing in French courts where a senior journalist is being pursued by a mastermind of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi who has found a safe haven in France for close to three decades. The French journalist, who extensively worked to uncover genocide fugitives hiding in her country, is facing defamation charges stemming from her characterisarion of the crimes the genocidaire stands accused in Rwanda to those committed by Nazis during the Holocaust. The plaintiff in question is a former spy chief who is wanted for his role in massacres in which over one million people died. It is sad that the French judiciary chose to entertain this 'defamation' case before the same fugitive had his day in court to, at least, substantiate the genocide charges that he faces before defamation, which is much lesser a crime. It’s not just this one suspect who has found safe haven in France. There is a whole host of them, including a well-established network of Rwandan extremists that has found safety in a French city called Orléans, who share the same genocide ideology. This network, which has used France as a base to continue their genocidal agenda, is led by none other than Aloys Ntiwiragabo – the same man who appears as the plaintiff – who was exposed by the same French journalist in the dock. Over the years, many genocide ideologues including French nationals have freely published materials including books denying the Genocide against the Tutsi and denigrating the victims. These include a book by extremist French national Pierre Pean, whose book Noires Fureurs, Blancs Menteurs in which he characterizes victims of the Genocide as killers and turns killers into victims. France should avoid creating an environment where well-meaning people, including journalists, are discouraged from exposing these mass murderers who have evaded justice for way too long.
