Justice Delayed is Just DeniedJennifer Fierberg, MSW Salem-News.com
Tomorrow we will press charges against President Kagame in the ICC
(WASHINGTON DC) - This common saying means that justice is something meant to be handled at the present moment. This is so because, like Martin Luther King said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
The Rwandan and Congolese people are suffering at the hands of the rebel group going by the name M23. They are back with weapons, munitions, communications equipment and money from the Rwandan Government. Much of the world has stepped and stopped their foreign aid to Rwanda based on the findings of the UN GoE report that Rwanda has unsuccessfully disputed.
Now Rwanda’s public relations team has blown into high gear trying to discredit the experts that wrote this report and have falsely quoted even Steven Rapp on their own soil. This group has also been attacking opponents online via social media, emails and phone call threats. This team of RPF defenders will stop at nothing to attempt to discredit anyone who sheds light on the realities of the crisis going on in the Congo.
Political groups in Holland have come together to present their case against President Paul Kagame at The Hague so he can be investigated and possibly arrested and held accountable for his actions in the Congo. Many dispute that anything will come of this action because he has been a pawn of the West for decades. Yet, the action is very notable considering his war crimes stem back to the 1980’s.
The next step is yet to be decided by the ICC:
