Spanish Reject Criminal Paul Kagame

Demonstrators display fake blood on their hands and a poster of Rwanda's President Paul Kagame during a protest against his presence in Madrid on Friday, July 16, 2010.

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has refused to meet Rwandan President Paul Kagame at a U.N. meeting here following protests against the African leader.
Zapatero was to meet Kagame and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon at government headquarters Friday for a first session of the Millennium Development Goals Advocacy Group.

Ban chose Zapatero and Kagame to preside over the group as part of preparations for a September U.N summit on reducing poverty.
Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero pulled out of a United Nations meeting in Madrid Friday after human rights groups protested the attendance of Rwandan President Paul Kagame, whom the Spanish judiciary has accused of genocide.

The meeting was also moved from the seat of government, Moncloa palace, to a hotel, he said.

The meeting was the first to be held by a group of experts named last month by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to supervise the UN’s Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to halve extreme poverty by 2015. Ban named Kagame and Zapatero as his co-chairs. Controversy has surrounded a UN meeting in Madrid.
The Spanish Prime Minister met separately with UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon, leaving the other dignitaries to attend a meeting hosted by a government minister.
Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero pulled out of the UN meeting due to political pressure over the presence of Paul Kagame, the President of Rwanda.
Parties had asked Zapatero not to meet Kagame due to ongoing Spanish legal proceedings linked to the 1994 genocide.

War criminal paul kagame leaving in shame!!

A U.S. lawsuit accuses Kagame of ordering the downing of a plane carrying Rwanda’s president in 1994. The crash sparked a genocide that left at least 500,000 people dead.
Spain’s judiciary says that Kagame established a reign of terror in Rwanda in the 1990s, committing crimes against the civilian population in which at least nine Spaniards were also killed.
In 2008 an investigating judge issued international arrest warrants for 40 members of the east African country’s military.
There was also enough evidence to start criminal procedures against Kagame, it was said at the time. As a head of state, however, Kagame enjoyed immunity. Human rights organizations including Amnesty International as well as several political parties had protested Kagame’s attendance at Friday’s meeting.
