Government should set up a specific office to deal with the growing genocide negationist lobby, says Parliament in a new report.

The upper house of parliament, the Senate, recommends the government appoints “Ambassador at Large” – a position which if established will be the first such appointment.

The recommendation is part of a long list of actions the Senate highlights in a new 149-page report detailing international denial and negation of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda.

The new official and the office will monitor global actions that are in favour of genocide or against. The official will also name and shame individuals, entities aiding genocide denial, and countries that are not putting in place anti-genocide laws.

The report, which has been months in the making, also accuses Caritas Suisse, the Swiss section of Catholic aid agency Caritas, of genocide denial.

Other catholic Church affiliated agencies named include Catholic missionaries media agency BIM and associations linked to the DR Congo Catholic Church.

There is also, according to the Senate, a platform in France which campaigns for Rwandan Catholic priest Fr. Wenceslas Munyeshyaka, accused in Rwanda of his role in massacre at a church in Kigali.

The platform is called “Comité de vigilance pour la présomption d’innocence du Père Wenceslas Munyeshyaka”. Its said to be led by French catholic priest Arnaud Vimbert.

The Senate also names great lakes channels of British and American state broadcasters BBC Gahuzamiryango and VOA Ijwi ry’Amerika of being platforms used by Rwandan exiled politicians to advance their genocide negationist agenda.

BBC Gahuzamiryango has been blocked on FM in Rwanda since 2014. It aires live via Facebook. For over a month now, VOA Ijwi ry’Amerika has also been removed from local stations which syndicate it.

BBC Panorama‘s Jane Corbin and John Conroy also subject of the Senate’s new campaign against genocide denial.

In the report, the Senate lists 24 online radios, websites and blogs managed by Rwandan exiled politicians and dissidents.

Among them includes former prime minister Faustin Twagiramungu, former secretary general of Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) Rudasingwa Théogène, and the Rwanda National Congress (RNC).

There is also a site www.fdlr.org, supposedly for the FDLR.
However, the Senate report leaves out about five other sites linked to the FDLR, and many other web platforms associated with Rwandan exiles.
