A Human Rights Watch Report, “All Thieves Must Be Killed” came out alleging several human rights violations. No evidence was provided on HRW’s findings.
This report provides details of the investigation carried out by the National Commission for Human Rights pursuant to its mandate of monitoring the respect of human rights and the investigation on the situations. It also describes the methodology employed by HRW throughout its investigation as well as comments and opinions of the population and local authorities in that regard.In addition, the report provides information on allegations of extrajudicial executions.
Rwandan parliamentarians have now called for a lawsuit against HRW and the revision of agreements between Rwanda and the organization following this erroneous report.
