Newsline: Belgian Embassy issues visa to Rwandan general charged with genocide

Belgium has given a visa to the head of the Rwandan special services General Karenzi Karake who was found guilty of genocide by a Spanish judge in 2008. According to reports fromBrussels, the general accompanied Rwandan President Paul Kagame during his visit to France. France has no embassy in Rwanda, so the Belgian Embassy issued a visa for the internationally wanted general at the request of Paris. In 1994 the Rwandan provisional government organized the massacre of 800,000 people from the Tutsi minority. People of the large Hutu nationality who had moderate political views were also killed.
