forum. Twenty-seven years ago, on April 7, 1994, Joseph Kavaruganda was assassinated by soldiers from the Presidential Guard of the Rwandan regime in the early morning. The genocide began. This honest district court judge was the president of his country’s Constitutional Court and was the first victims of the extinction of the Tutsi and their “accomplices.” He is one of the most outstanding representatives of these Hutu democrats.
Member of the Constitutional Council of the French Republic, I would like to pay tribute to President Joseph Kavaruganda, and I would like to pay tribute to the peaceful and legal people who the international community has failed to protect from Rwanda’s national killers. Joseph Kavaruganda often opposes President Juvénal Habyarimana and the extremists around him. He criticized the establishment of a front-line multi-party system, and the rights of the opposition were not guaranteed. He supported the adoption of the “Arusha Agreement” (August 4, 1993), which provided for power sharing with the support of France, and worked hard to achieve proper implementation, especially avoiding the oath of office in 1994. Swear an oath to the extremist government.
Victims of Joseph Kavaruganda’s multiple assassinations, including inside the walls of the Constitutional Court, have never overstepped their heads and continue to firmly defend democracy. On April 7, he was kidnapped by his family in front of his family and assassinated by these extremists, who have never been succumbed by them. It provides us with lessons of personal courage and reminds us of the dignity of the law in the face of barbaric empires.
The peacekeepers assigned to protect him were not helpful.In order to support the implementation of the Arusha Agreement, the 2,300 soldiers in Minual The United Nations Assistance Mission for Rwanda also failed to oppose genocide. To make matters worse, on April 21, 1994, after the Security Council decided to withdraw from Rwanda from Belgium, Rwanda abandoned the Rwanda campaign. The country had slaughtered several soldiers, which sharply reduced the country’s ground population to 270. . France joins this measure in solidarity with our Belgian friends. Today, the truth must be seen as an act of international cowardice. At the same time, the French Minister of Foreign Affairs to which I belonged decided to evacuate French and European nationals immediately after the start of the massacre.
