ICTR ADAD Demands Release of Peter Erlinder

28 May, 2010
ICTR ADAD Demands Release of Peter Erlinder
Press Release
28 May 2010

According to available information, Professor Peter Erlinder, a Defence attorney at the ICTR, and Professor of Law at William Mitchell College of Law in the United States, was arrested on 28 May in Kigali on the charge of “denying genocide” (genocidal ideology).

Professor Erlinder is in Kigali this week, acting on behalf of his client, Ms. Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, who is trying to oppose President Kagame in the upcoming August presidential elections, and who has also been charged with “denying genocide.”

Professor Erlinder is Lead Counsel for Major Aloys Ntabakuze in the “Military I” case at the ICTR. He is also one of the organizers of the successful ICTR Defence Conference, held in Brussels, Belgium last weekend.

He is the current President of the ADAD, the ICTR Defense Counsel organization.

We urge all individuals and organizations to urgently contact the Rwandan government, the U.S. Government and others to:

a) Demand the immediate release of Professor Peter Erlinder;

b) Demand Professor Erlinder’s immediate access to counsel;

c) Urge the Rwandan government to drop these fabricated and baseless charges against Professor Erlinder.

Signed: Ad Hoc Organizing Committee for Brussels Conference

Hey there. I noticed your site title, "Blogger: Africa Great Lakes Democracy Watch"
doesn't really reflect the content of your web page. When creating your website title, do you believe it's
best to write it for Search engine marketing or for your readers?
This is one thing I've been struggling with due to the fact I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my visitors.

Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've
worked hard on. Any suggestions?

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding
one? Thanks a lot!
