"Accepter de supporter indéfiniment le poids d’un crime qu’on n'a pas commis, porter injustement le qualificatif de « criminel de génocide » sans clamer son innocence est une entorse à la recherche de la vérité"

Swedish Supreme Court Releases Sylvère Ahorugeze

In 2006, Kigali indicated that at least 15 Rwandan genocide suspects were living in Denmark.
Sylvère Ahorugeze, a Rwandan national and former director of the Rwandan Civil Aviation Authority and of Kigali international airport, has legally resided in Denmark since the end of the genocide. Under an Interpol arrest warrant, the Rwandan government accused Ahorugeze of war crimes and genocide.

In the absence of an extradition agreement between Rwanda and Denmark, Ahorugeze was arrested in September 2006 under Danish law which allows for the prosecution of genocide suspects resident in Denmark, charged with killing Tutsi civilians. After nearly a year in custody, Ahorugeze was released and awarded damages when a Danish prosecutor dropped the case due to lack of evidence.

However, Sylvère Ahorugeze was arrested again in 2008:

"On 16 July 2008, Ahorugeze was arrested in Stockholm after visiting the Rwandan embassy in Sweden. A Swedish court subsequently ordered him to remain in custody pending a request for extradition by Rwanda on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity."

On july 25 2008 the US government stated in a press release:

"The United States welcomes the July 16 arrest in Stockholm of Sylvere Ahorugeze, indicted by the Government of Rwanda for genocide and would welcome further steps to bring Ahorugeze to justice that are consistent with Swedish law.

The arrest of Ahorugeze follows the July 7 arrest of Callixte Mbarusimana in Frankfurt, also indicted by the Government of Rwanda for genocide.

The arrests of Sylvere Ahotugeze and Callixte Mbarusimana send a powerful signal that there is no refuge for the perpetrators of crimes against humanity."

Apparently Washington "knew" that Sylbere Ahotugeze was guilty. Fits perfectly in the State Department's interference with justice in the great lakes region in the spanish genocide case against Paul Kagame around that same time.

Editions "Sources du Nil" wrote july 19th 2009:

"Swedish government decided last week that Ahorugeze, a 53-year-old former director of Rwanda's civil aviation authority, would be extradited within 45 days."

Georgetown security brief wrote july 10 2009:

Sweden will become the first European Union nation to extradite a Rwandan, Sylvere Ahorugeze, who headed the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority, to his native country so that he can stand trial for his alleged role in Rwanda's 1994 genocide

According to Radio Netherlands Worldwide Sweden suspended the extradition following a request by the European Court of Human Rights, amid concerns over the central African nation's rights record and the independence of its judiciary.

Gregory Gordon of Opinion Juris wrote july 23 2009 that the extradition was suspeneded because:

"Ahorugeze promptly filed a petition with the European Court of Human Rights, which has granted provisional measures asking Sweden not to extradite him “until further notice.”

July 16 2009 Cecilia Riddselius, the Swedish justice ministry official in charge of the case, told AFP:
"The Swedish government considers that this decision of the court will be respected," she added."

However, Sylvère Ahorugeze has been released, his lawyer Hans Wide Berg stated today:

"He is sitting in my office now and will probably travel home to his family in Denmark today, said his lawyer, Hans Wide Berg."

Ahorugeze suspects he has been the victim of a revenge plot because as ormer Director General of the Civil Aviation Authority of Rwanda he has knowledge implicating Paul Kagame in the shooting of the plane of former Rwanda President Juvenal Habyarimana.

A kangaroo court has already sold Ahorugezes house in Rwanda, and a portion of the money has gone to the man who should be the main witness in the case of the killing of 25 Tutsis.

The 2010 Amnesty International Rwanda report mentions Sylvère Ahorugeze:

"Judicial proceedings against genocide suspects took place in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Finland and the USA. Extradition hearings against genocide suspects continued in Finland, Sweden and the UK. No country extradited genocide suspects to Rwanda for trial.

The Rwandan government reported that it had over 500 genocide suspects under investigation around the world. It also stated that some African countries had not co-operated with its investigations.

No country extradited genocide suspects to Rwanda."

Sweden, 27.07.2011:

Sylvëre Ahorugeze ni umunyarwanda wari umaze imyaka itatu muri gereza nkuru ya hano muri Suwedi. Mu myaka itatu ishize, ubwo yari aherekeje umugore we muri ambassade y'u Rwanda i Stockholm gushakayo ibyangombwa, ambassadeur w'icyo gihe, Jacqueline Mukangira, yahise amuhamagarira polisi, iyi na yo ihita imwirukankana. U Rwanda rwamuregaga cya cyaha rutangiye gutesha agaciro, cyitwa jenoside.

Mbere y'uko afatwa, Sylvère Ahorugeze yari atuye mu gihugu cya Danemark. Aha na ho yari yarigeze kuhafungirwa icyo cyaha igihe cy'umwaka, ubutabera busanga ari umwere, buramurekura, ndetse ahabwa indishyi y'akababaro igera kuri miliyoni y'ama couronnes, amafaranga akoreshwa muri icyo gihugu. Imyaka itatu y'agatsi amaze mu buroko bwa hano, yagombye na yo kuyibonera izindi ndishyi zikubye gatatu izo yabonye muri Danemark.

Ubwo ubutegetsi bw'i Kigali bwari bumaze kwishima ko umujenosideri wabwo yafatiwe i Stockholm, bwahise bukoresha za nkiko zabwo zitagira amategeko, zitwa gacaca, maze zimukatira ataburanye. Inzu ye yari ifite imwenda wa Caisse d'Epargne, gacaca yayiteje cyamunara miliyoni 12 gusa. Ni inzu yari ikwiye byibura miliyoni 30 z'u Rwanda. Mu bacikacumu mfite amazina yabo bari baturanye na we i Gikondo, cyeretse utarashatse kuvuga ko Ahorugeze yabasahuye muri jenoside kugirango izo miliyoni uko ari 12 bazigabane bose. Ni uko byagenze.

Akimara gufatirwa hano, Kigali yasabye Leta ya Suwedi kumwohereza mu Rwanda ariko biba iby'ubusa. Kubera amarangamutima y'u Rwanda, Minisitiri w'ubutabera wa hano, Beatrice Ask, yemeye ko Ahorugeze asubizwa mu Rwanda, ariko uyu aza kwitabaza urukiko mpuzamahanga rushinzwe uburenganzira bw'ikiremwamuntu, rukorera i Strasbourg mu Bufaransa. Icyavuye mu bujurire bwe ngirango nta kindi uretse kurekurwa, guhanagurwaho icyaha yaregwaga.

Sylvère Ahorugeze yahanaguweho icyaha burundu; nta n'ubwo agishubijwe mu Rwanda kuburanirayo icyaha kitakiriho kuko Leta y'u Rwanda yasabwe ibimenyetso by'iki cyaha, birabura. Ibimenyetso Kigali yari ifite ni ibyo kuba Ahorugeze yarabonye uko indege yari itwaye Perezida Habyarimana, yahanuwe. Kuri Kigali ibi ni ibimenyetso bikomeye byo kurega umuntu icyaha cya jenoside.

Leta y'u Rwanda yakomeje ubwayo gutesha agaciro icyaha cya jenoside kuko ikirega umuhutu uwo ari we wese utavuga rumwe na yo. Urugero rufatika ni urw'uyu mugabo Sylvère Ahorugeze umaze kurekurwa n'urukiko rurenze rumwe, bikaba bigaragara ko ya ma koperative y'abashinjabinyoma yo mu Rwanda (les associations de délateurs) atangiye guta agaciro.

Indishyi y'akababaro kuri iki gihugu cyamufungiye ubusa, arazikwiye. Na byo biri mu kurwanya umuco wo kudahana no kurenganyiriza abantu ubusa.

Amiel Nkuliza.
