Dutch government helping Kagame Rig Election?

by H. Vincent Harris

[Rwanda : What do these victims have in common? Guess you know!
  1. Mr. Kagwa Rwisereka, VP of the Rwandan Green Party
  2. Mr. Jean Leonard Rugambage, Journalist of Umuvugizi
  3. Mr. Jwani Mwayikusa, Defense Lawyer at the ICTR
  4. Ms. Alice Muhirwa, treasurer of the FDU-Inkingi]=>ASIF

Late last month, the editor of a suspended local-language publication was gunned down in front of his home. … [The government’s] explanations become harder to credit every time a critic of the government drops dead or lands in jail.”Dutch Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Verhagen recently answered questions (Google translated) in Parliament concerning Rwanda’s election. (These answers were published online in Dutch on July 30, 2010.)

The rush transcript shows that the Dutch government refutes claims by the Rwandan opposition parties of Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, Frank Habineza and Bernard Ntaganda that the process so far has been rigged and since July the Dutch government is apparently co-presiding over the Rwandan National Electoral Commission.

 In Rwanda, President Paul Kagame can still draw crowds as he campaigns to win re-election Aug. 9 and no public criticism since he shut down all opposition media, but around the world the press is questioning him as never before. A July 21 story in the Wall Street Journal begins, “Last week a Rwandan opposition figure was found murdered, his head nearly severed from his body.

The translated answer by Maxime Verhagen which specifically refutes an important claim by the Permanent Consultative Council of Opposition Parties states:
“The claim of the PCC that the independence of the National Electoral Commission (NEC) would only be guaranteed through the participation of opposition is not shared by me. The PCC ‘falls over’ the fact that the chairman of the NEC is a member of the RPF [Rwandan Patriotic Front, Kagame's army and party]. Neutrality, however, is effectively monitored by the co-chair, a donor (The Netherlands).

De Nederlandse politiek in Rwanda is iets waar je dagen over kan praten.

J.L. Rugambage Assassinated.

The Netherlands since July 2010 as acting co-chairman of the NEC is co-responsible for setting the agenda and for bringing specific topics to the table. The NEC is directly involved in the process for the adjustment of the electoral law and also responsible for the electoral process. The NEC shall also ensure fairness of the campaign, for example, by checking that the media focus on the current four candidates is distributed evenly. The registration of the presidential candidates was also done at the NEC.”
Ms. Alice Muhirwa collapses before RPF fabrications
On Frank Habineza, Maxime Verhagen states that the Rwandan Green Party (my translation) “wanted to participate without fulfilling all conditions, which is participating without holding a founding meeting. This is considered contrary to the Rwandan Constitution.”
That statement totally ignores the fact that the Rwandan government has made it impossible, through Kafkaesque measures, for the Green Party to hold such a meeting.
[Welke rol gespeeld door de Nederlandse Ambassade in Kigali/Rwanda in NEC?
Dhr Frans Makken, de Nederlandse Ambassadeur in Rwanda

Er was een onderzoek over de massamoord in Srebrenitsa.
Even zo, ASI Stichting vraagt een onafhankelijk  onderzoek naar de rol gespeelde door de Nederlandse Ambassade in Kigali/Rwanda in de NEC. Wat is er feitelijk over het gedrag van de Ndse Ambassade in de critische huidige situatie in Rwanda? => ASIF]

The fact that the Dutch government is now a member of the Rwandan NEC merits serious discussion. Has anyone in the world ever seen a foreign government be part of a National Electoral Commission?

[ASI betrokkenheid :
Als het waar is, de Nederlandse regering ondermijnt de huidige politieke situatie in Rwanda en in het bijzonder van Mevrouw Ingabire Victoire. Ook zou Nederland verantwoordelijk zijn voor de verslechtering van de mensenrechtensituatie in Rwanda vlak voor de verkiezingen => ASIF].

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your
blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
