In the interview worldThe Minister of Foreign Affairs of Rwanda, Vincent Biruta, produced by Kigali through a video conference, reviewed the role of France during the Tutsi massacre, which killed nearly 1 million people in Rwanda in the spring of 1994.
At the request of the Elysee Palace, a few weeks after drafting the Duclert Committee report from the French Archives, Vincent Biruta relied on the Rwandan government to entrust the US law firm Muse to report. “Conduct an in-depth investigation to determine the role of the French government.” Titled “Foreseeable Genocide: The Role of the French State in Rwanda’s Genocide Against the Tutsi”, it must be handed over to the Rwandan government on Monday, April 19.

This is an investigation report conducted by jurists and lawyers, not a criminal investigation. This is why it is not desirable to initiate criminal proceedings in Rwanda based on the Muse report. The purpose is to study and record facts. Unlike the Mucyo report, the report did not address possible criminal liability issues.
