Netherland pledges cooperation to extraditeNetherland Minister of Migration, Justice and Security Fred Teevens has said that his government will fully cooperate to extradite Rwandan Genocide suspects living in the Netherlands.

Teevens said that Dutch Government will not hesitate to work with Rwanda to extradite 20 people suspected of committing Genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994; and this will start with one genocide suspect Jean Claude Iyamuremye, whose case is still in the Supreme Court.

His remarks come at a time when Rwanda is making significant progress on having genocide suspects living abroad, extradited by various countries- with the latest action seen from the French government despite the UK government being reluctant to follow suit.

Teevens said that the Dutch government is in the process of extraditing, one suspect -Jean Claude Iyamuremye known as Nzinga, who is current detained in Hague court.

We will co-operate with Rwanda so that those suspects could come and be trialed where they commit crimes, but for those who have got Holland nationality their cases will be handled by Holland courts.”

Rwanda’s Justice Minister and Attorney General, Johnston Busingye, said that the partnership between Rwanda and Netherlands will bear fruit and bring justice to genocide survivors.

The Dutch Minister and his Rwandan counterpart also took time to visit the Kigali Genocide memorial center in Gisozi.
