Des escadrons de la mort venus du Rwanda actifs en Belgique?

(FILES) -- A file photo taken on April 16, 2015 shows Rwandan President Paul Kagame attending a press conference with Ethiopia's Prime Minister at the National Palace in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Rwandan lawmakers were set to debate on July 14, 2015 possible changes to the constitution to allow strongman Paul Kagame a third term in power as president. Over 3.7 million people -- well over half of the voters -- have signed a petition calling for a change of Article 101 of the constitution, which limits the president to two terms, according to Rwandan media. The public have been invited to attend the debate to "examine the relevance of the people's petitions submitted to the parliament, asking for the amendment of the Article 101 of the constitution on presidential terms," a parliamentary statement read, according to the New Times newspaper on July 14.

Le régime au pouvoir au Rwanda tenterait d’éliminer des dissidents et des opposants en Belgique, annonce Het Belang van Limburg sur base d’indices sérieux. Kigali utiliserait pour cela des commandos performants envoyés dans notre pays. La Sûreté de l’Etat aurait déjà dû fournir sa protection à plusieurs personnes.

Mercedes blindée

L’histoire commence l’an dernier. Une journaliste canadienne, Judi Rever, auteur d’articles critiques à l’égard du régime du président rwandais Paul Kagame, est en visite de travail en Belgique. Durant son séjour d’une semaine, elle doit se déplacer en Mercedes blindée accompagnée de deux agents de la Sûreté, écrit le journal.

Un accord avec la Sûreté

La Sûreté de l’Etat s’abstient évidemment de tout commentaire à ce sujet, mais Het Belang van Limburg a pu consulter l’accord signé à ce sujet par Judi Rever et les services belges.

La journaliste canadienne témoigne aussi : “L’agent m’a informé du fait que la Belgique avait de sérieuses informations selon lesquelles l’ambassade rwandaise à Bruxelles constituait une menace pour moi”.

Approché pour liquider des opposants

Het Belang van Limburg a également recueilli le témoignage d’un ancien allié de Kagame, Robert Higiro, approché par les services de renseignement rwandais pour liquider des opposants, témoignage qu’il a aussi donné à Judi Rever.

L’histoire de Judi Rever est en outre confirmée par notre confrère de la VRT, spécialiste de l’Afrique centrale, Peter Verlinden qui a eu l’occasion de la rencontrer l’an dernier en Belgique : elle bénéficiait effectivement à ce moment de la protection d’un membre de la Sûreté, témoigne le journaliste de la VRT.

Peter Verlinden souligne aussi que de nombreux Rwandais sont placés sous protection, permanente ou momentanée, comme l’ancien Premier ministre Faustin Twagiramungu, cible possible de menaces de mort en mai 2014.

En morceaux dans le canal

Le journaliste de la VRT, qui dénonce au passage un régime “criminel et meurtrier“, évoque par exemple les cas plus tragiques le colonel Patrick Karegeya, ancien chef des services de renseignements, étranglé le 1er janvier 2014 dans un hôtel à Johanesburg ou ce Rwandais retrouvé en morceaux dans le canal à Bruxelles, deux cas qui se retrouvent dans la liste des assassinats politiques d’opposants rwandais à l’étranger dressée par Het Belang van Limburg.

Sweden jails a member of Kagame’s death squad who was spying Rwandan refugees.

Aimable Rubagenga a.k.a Emmanuel Habiyambere: there are many like him who are claiming life to Rwandan Refugees especially politicians and journalists.

On Wednesday October 23rd , 2013, Örebro  District Court has sentenced  Aimable Rubagenga to eight months of imprisonment after being  found guilty of spying Rwandan refugees living in Sweden.

Aimable Rubagenga aka Emmanuel Habiyambere aged 44, was spying Rwandans who fled persecution and extrajudicial killings in Rwanda. Rubagenga was receiving orders directly from the chief of Kagame’s death squad, General Jack Nziza. One of codes he used to communicate with Kigali, is “banana”, meaning the targeted refugee. The most wanted was Gasasira Jean Bosco, the owner of the online newspaper Umuvugizi.com.

Aimable Rubagenga a Rwandan, had applied and been granted refugee status in Sweden as a Burundi national using names of Emmanuel Habiyambere in order to go undercover.  After a long period of investigations carried out by Swedish police, the suspect was arrested in 2012. During that year, another official of Rwanda embassy in Sweden Evode Mudaheranwa was also given 48 hours to leave the country due to his involvement in activities to harm the security of Rwandan refugees.  The same Evode Mudaheranwa had unsuccessfully tried to kill Gasasira Jean Bosco because police  remained vigilant after having enough information regarding Kigali’s plan to eliminate opponents especially politicians and journalists in different countries. In its report, the ministry of foreign affairs of Sweden has noted that Kagame’s death squad is operating all over in the country and many of its members have a refugee status.

One of the main evidence that impeached Rubagenga is the numerous SMS he exchanged with Maj General Jack Nziza with information on how to hunt and kill Rwandan refugees.

Despite Rwandan refugees repeated cry over spy activities by the regime that pushed them into exile, Sweden is the first country to take such action by prosecuting a member of Kagame’s death squad. It should be reminded that in 2011 the UK police has revealed an assassination plot that targeted Rwandan politicians living in London, Rene Mugenzi and Jonathan Musonera. The government of Rwanda has always denied such plot just the same way it denies its involvement in Eastern Congo despite strong evidence and satellite pictures showing Rwanda troops crossing the border.

All countries that are accommodating Rwandan refugees should remain alert since Kagame’s death squad is everywhere.
