Burundi: Should we use the S/1996/682 report to try the real murderers of Ndadaye and the perpetrators of the 1993 tutsi genocide?
At a time when the Cnddfdd power is now attacking the various political and military leaders to paste fanciful condemnations of people who have not even had the slightest opportunity to present their defences, the public raises the question of where fair and competent justice would come from to investigate, establish individual responsibilities and try the killers of Ndadaye Melchior and the perpetrators of the 1993 Tutsi genocide that followed the assassination.
Let’s take a little leap to give you this testimony of the survivors of this genocide, which shows that the assassination of Ndadaye was only a trigger, but that the genocide was to begin just after the victory of the Frodebu:  »Since the proclamation of the provisional results of the presidential elections on 2 June 1993, the members of the FRODEBU have, in the evening, sounded the alarm at the whistle and drums, they attacked the Tutsis and hutu upronists, starting with the first municipal secretary of uprona, by insults, intimidation, stone-throwing, threats of expropriation and death. It was necessary for the municipal leader of the FRODEBU, Mr Simeon NTAHONIKORA, on pressure from the then municipal administrator, to criss-cross the hills of Rutegama, to instruct the members of his party to stop the threats and the heists, with the password: « Rwa rubanza rwasivye (the case is postponed)’.
It is out of the question that a criminal power such as that of the cnddfdd, whose leaders are among those who committed the 1993 genocide and who continued to kill innocent people from the bush to the present day, would claim to hold a trial of Ndadaye’s alleged murderers after 27 years. This proves enough that it is more a political trial than anything else
In the freshness of the facts, an investigation was conducted by a United Nations commission which gave a report, both on the assassination of President Ndadaye and on the killings that followed. From its composition to the way it conducts its investigations, the commission’s findings and recommendations appear credible and can inspire confidence in each other to seek fair justice.
We propose to share with our readers excerpts from this report of the UN S/1996/682 of 22 August 1996. We do not want to go into the documents on the modalities of its implementation, but its composition we think it is useful to make known to the public.
In accordance with Resolution 1012, Boutros Boutros Ghali, then Un Secretary General, appointed, on 20 September 1995, an international commission of inquiry in Burundi composed of the following lawyers: Edilbert RAZAFINDRALAMBO (Madagascar); Abdelali EL MOUMNI (Morocco); Mehmet GoNEY (Turkey); Luis HERRERA MARCANO (Venezuela) and Michel MAURICE (Canada)
Seeing its composition, there is no way to think that it could lean on any side. Its conclusions and recommendations should be objective. The commission had time to question many people and the government of the day made it easier for them.
The commission was mandated to establish the facts concerning the assassination of the President of Burundi on 21 October 1993; establish the facts concerning the massacres and other serious acts of violence that followed (the assassination of the President of Burundi on 21 October 1993); recommend measures to bring those responsible to justice; recommend measures of a legal, political or administrative nature, depending on whether, after consultation with the Government of Burundi, acts similar to those investigated by the Government of Burundi should be prevented from happening again and, in general, to eliminate impunity and promote national reconciliation in Burundi »
We will go into detail on its findings and recommendations, but already, one of the points of its conclusion was: ‘’The Commission considers that the evidence available to it is sufficient to establish that acts of genocide were perpetrated in Burundi against the Tutsi minority on 21 October 1993 and the following days at the instigation and with the participation of certain Hutu activists and leaders of the FRODEBU, including at the level of the communes.’ We will give you some of this evidence given by the survivors who witnessed the grisly scenes.
Seeing the complicity in the case of the murder of Melchior Ndadaye and the subsequent genocide of the Tutsis, the commission proposed an international jurisdiction to try these acts.
Today, the ruling military clique does not hear about this jurisdiction because it wants to use its jurisdictions, which it manipulates as it wants according to its interests.
URN HITAMWONEZA believes that the Cnddfdd power has armed itself with all physical means to refuse everything that is wrong with its course of action in order to hide all the crimes it has committed and continue to rule as an absolute master, holding an entire people hostage. It takes a national outburst to put out of harm the handful of men who are ruining the country. Only in this way can a competent and independent justice be put in place so that everyone is accountable for their actions and that the rest live in peace and think about development.
