Some of these documents, such as diplomatic cables and confidential notes, appeared in a report on France’s role in the future of genocide in Rwanda, published at the end of March.
Madrid (EUROPA PRESS)-According to the official gazette, France on Wednesday declassified documents related to the situation in Rwanda from 1990 to 1994, which were documents 27 years after the Tutsi genocide.
These documents include those of former French President François Mitterand and then Prime Minister Edouard Balladur.
According to Franceinfo, some of these documents, such as diplomatic cables and confidential statements, appeared in a report published at the end of March on France’s role in the Rwandan genocide.
The report was prepared by an independent committee of historians convened by the Elysee Palace to clarify the possible responsibilities of France in the events that occurred. The report accused the French government of “blindness” and “indifference” over the years.
Specifically, in a one-thousand-page book, the work criticized the Midland government for confronting the Hutu president Juvénal Habyarimana’s “racist, corrupt and violent regime” Of “blindness.” The survey shows that although Paris has “overwhelming responsibilities” and “intellectuals”, it is not the case.
It can also be seen from the investigation page that not only did France’s relationship with the person responsible for the genocide “slowly break”, but the French authorities “never seriously considered arrests” and even “put arrests first.” For the Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF), the former Tutsi rebellion helped put an end to the massacre.
In 1994, about 800,000 Rwandans (most of them Tutsi and moderate Hutus) were killed by Hutu extremists for about three months. Today, mass graves are still being discovered, especially because criminals serving sentences have provided information about the location. They buried or abandoned the victims.
The roots of the conflict between Hutus and Tutsi can be traced back several generations, but the genocide was launched after the death of President Juventus Habyarimana. It was the victim of the downfall of his presidential plane. The President of Burundi, Cyprien Ntaryamira, also rides a missile. On April 6, 1994.
After the death of the president, the Interahamwe militia launched a 100-day execution campaign, tearing up its victims in their homes, churches, football fields or roadblocks many times.
