Rwandans and Congolese to bring President Kagame to the International Criminal Court (ICC)


Date : 06 August , 2012.

On 17 August 2012, Rwandans will be joined by Congolese to formally file a complaint with the International Criminal Court, and demand that the prosecutor lay charges against President Paul Kagame and his accomplices based on REPORTS OF THE GROUP OF EXPERTS SUBMITTED THROUGH THE SECURITY COUNCIL COMMITTEE ESTABLISHED PURSUANT TO RESOLUTION 1533 (2004) CONCERNING THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO [1], Report of the DRC Mapping Exercise documenting the most serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed within the territory of the DRC between March 1993 and June 2003 [2], and the Addendum to the interim report of the Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of Congo (S/2012/348) concerning violations of the arms embargo and sanctions regime by the Government of Rwanda.

We invite Rwandans, Congolese, Africans, and members of the international community to witness this historical moment and to sign the subsequent petition in front of the International Criminal Court Building, The Hague(Netherlands), from 11:00 to 14:00.

Thanks to the efforts of members of the civil society, JAMBO asbl, le Centre de Lutte contre l’Impunité et l’Injustice (CLIIR) and the Womens International Network for Democracy and Peace (RIFDP -Holland and Belgium).
