Open letter to Thierry THULLIER, program director on France 2 and Olivier ROYANT, director of editorial at Paris Match.

SIRS, On February 5, 2015, I sent you a letter, Mr ROYANT, to protest against the words you uttered, together with Damien THEVENOT, a journalist on France 2 , during the program “ Télé Matin” presented by William LEYMERGIE . It is unnecessary to quote these words again, they have been largely denounced.

The CPCR is a ...

“Rwanda’s untold story.” : really?

The broadcasting of a documentary on BBC2, lately, about the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda has stirred up numerous and legitimate reactions. Even if the allegations developed in the film , are ,for the most part, overused , they can only create doubt and perplexity upon those who don’t really know what it is all about and feed revisionism , all too alive, especially in France.

A new French magistrate, judge Marc TREVIDIC , has clearly asserted ...
