Erlinder had traveled to Kigali, Rwanda’s capitol, to defend Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza.
Ingabire, who attempted to run for president against Paul Kagame, is now in prison herself.
American Law Professor Peter Erlinder is about to begin a speaking tour to present his 70-page compilation of original UN documents and evidence, and his analysis what actually happened in Rwanda between 1993 and 1995. Erlinder says that the U.S., its allies, and the Rwandan government are collaborators in an ongoing coverup of the truth at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in Arusha, Tanzania, and that the U.S. was responsible for the Rwanda Genocide and the ensuing Congo Wars.
