The Spanish Platform "Stop Impunity in Rwanda" and their delegates Juan Carrero, and Senator Pere Sampol in New York This Week

A coalition of organizations in Spain with the platform “Stop Impunity in Rwanda” is sending two of their delegates to New York this week to discuss violence and impunity in the Great Lakes Region (Congo/Rwanda) and the the leaked ROUGH DRAFT: Report of the Mapping Exercise documenting the most serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed within the territory of the Democratic Republic of the Congo between March 1993 and June 2003. The report indicates that Rwanda may have committed genocide in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 1996, as well as military crimes against humanity against refugees.

The two delegates include Juan Carrero Saralegui, promoter of International Forum for the Truth and Justice in the Great Lakes Region. He is the soul of the campaign and has been working for years against the impunity in the Great Lakes Region. He was proposed as a candidate for the 2000 Nobel Prize for Peace. He has written books, articles, and he did a hunger strike in Brussels towards the involvement of the EU in the DR Congo to stop the atrocities. The second member of the delegation is the Spanish Senator Pere Sampol i Mas, PSM-EN (GPMX), that supports fully this Campaign and has been very active in demanding official answers to the Spanish government on this issue.

Please join us for this late-breaking opportunity to greet distinguished rights activists Peter Erlinder,  Juan Carrero Sarlegui and Spanish Senator Pere Sampol and for questions and answers on the most recent initiatives toward ending impunity in the Great Lakes Region.
Former National Lawyers Guild president Peter Erlinder; founder of VeritasRwanda Forum Juan Carrero Sarlegui and Spanish Senator Pere Sampol will be looking to meet with U.S. counterparts to discuss the latest developments in the Rwanda/Congo region.

“With the strong conviction that the truth is history’s most powerful force and that its might is independent from the smallness of the messenger, we firmly resolved to investigate and analyze what had really happened in Rwanda and in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the last fourteen years.”

Messrs. Carrero and Sampol successfully pushed for a lawsuit against members of Rwandan government in Spain on behalf of Spanish victims who died in Rwanda after the genocide. The lawsuit on their behalf resulted in the indictments of 40 of Rwanda's current top and former military officials including James Kabarebe and Kayumba Nyamwasa for genocide crimes, and other human rights abuses.
These activists will provide information on their campaign and will discuss the recently leaked draft UN report indicating that Rwanda may have committed genocide and crimes against humanity in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)
Since May 2010 and the arrest of Minnesota-based professor Peter Erlinder in Rwanda, there has been a surge of international attention to Rwanda's "genocide ideology" and the limits placed on freedom of speech.

Juan Carrera of the International Forum for the Truth and Justice in the Great Lakes Region has been working for years against the impunity in the Great Lakes Region, trying to bring Hutus and Tutsis together to rebuild the country. .
Spanish Senator Pere Sampol of PSM-Entesa Nacionalita, fully supports this Campaign and has been very active in demanding official answers from the Spanish government on this issue.
