It is good news to Rwandans because when Genocide suspects are brought back to be tried where they committed the crimes, it helps in the healing and reconciliation process. People get to know the truth of what really happened. It is also good for Genocide survivors to see that justice is prevailing.

The process of Mugesera deportation has taken a long time. But what we should appreciate is that it finally took place. This is another achievement for the Rwandan justice.

Francois Xavier Nzamuye, Watchman, Huye town

Anyone who played a role in the 1994 Genocide must be held responsible. All those that have chosen to run across the globe should own up. I would rather advise them to come back and ask for forgiveness and then let justice take its course.

Egide Mugabo, student at ULK and genocide survivor

 The decision by the Canadian government cements the fact that Rwanda’s quality of justice is excellent. I commend Canada for doing what was needed...I however would love to see Mugesera tried in Gacaca-like courts in every sector of Rwanda-he virtually wronged all Rwandans and they would like to see him at close range.

Benjamin Igiraneza, Student-National University of Rwanda

As a Rwandan, I think this sends a very important message to the world, and especially to those countries that are not willing to bring genocide suspects to justice. They should learn from Canada’s decision to deport Mugesera.
