Simbikangwa trial : February 7th, 2014

The fourth day is still devoted to witnesses context. Jacques Sémelin, a specialist of mass crimes, opens the day. We will have a lecture, accessible to all and admired by the Court President. Addressing the jury: “A heavy responsibility rests on your shoulders. It is said that mass crimes are unthinkable ? Instead, they are too thinkable. We are often told not to try to understand! But to understand is not to excuse the perpetrators. Now we can not understand everything : everything must be done to understand, but there will always be something that will withstand our understanding.” Jacques …

Simbikangwa trial – 6th of february

The day begins with the testimony of Ms. Anne Soussy, medical examiner responsible for the medical examination of the accused. His report will bring little revelations about Pascal Simbikangwa.

After CNED, now Canal+ lands in turn

When issuing Canal + ” The landing ” aired last night, some actors have apparently dropped. Not having seen the show personally, I look at the reactions of some viewers who expressed their incomprehension and disgust. Apparently, one can be scandalized! Pretext to laugh, actors have indulged in dubious “jokes” about the Tutsi genocide perpetrated in Rwanda in 1994. Pretending to parody France 2 program “Voyage en terres inconnues” (“Go into the unknown”), they have devised a … trip to Rwanda. Believing to be funny, an actress saw fit to share his difficulties to adopt an orphan “because everybody knows …
