In 2005, six French political parties carried out judicial investigations of France’s responsibilities, which did not prevent the massacre of the Tu Serbs on Mount Bicero in 1994. The Duclete Committee’s report did not modify the analysis of the indictment.
The case must be important for the Paris prosecutor to sign the press release. Fifteen years after the investigation began, that is, the twenty-seventh year since the facts were established, the prosecution filed a dismissal of the prosecution in the Bisesero case on April 28. This is one of the most dramatic events in the Tutsi genocide, which occurred in June 1994 when French soldiers were sent to the country.
The prosecution believes that since 2005, the suspicion of complicity in genocide and crimes against humanity imposed on France by the six civil parties has not yet been established. It is now the issue of signing a dismissal order for the Cossis investigating judge. Or restart their investigation, which will be a real turning point.
In a press release issued on Monday, May 3, the prosecutor Rémy Heitz emphasized that the accusation has not yet been established “The French military did not provide any assistance or assistance during the atrocities, and the latter did not abide by the criminal plan adopted by the genocide criminals, nor did it intervene in such acts because of genocide or crimes against humanity. The previous agreement.”
Finally, according to the indictment, “The crime of conspiracy to commit genocide or crime against humanity under the law of August 6, 2004 does not apply when the facts are announced.” The Paris Prosecutor’s Office hopes to avoid any criticism of the incomplete nature of the investigation.Therefore, he emphasized “The document has more than 17,000 ribs, divided into 28 volumes”.
In June 2019, the investigating judge refused to continue working. However, the prosecution has been cautious and has not made any requests to this day, as if it was waiting for the work of a historian commissioned by Emmanuel Macron. The Duclete Commission’s report on France’s national responsibility in Rwanda was recently published from 1990 to 1994. Although many unpublished files were declassified, its legal analysis was not revised.
