Obama’s administration files motion to protect Kagame’s immunity in the US

by Ann Garrison

This Friday 9th September 2011, Obama’s Justice Dept. has filed a motion to grant Kagame immunity, as a head of state, from jurisdiction in this country, to stop Erlinder and Kerns’s civil lawsuit filed and served on him in OK City last year. Seems they can see that Erlinder and Kerns are winning the service argument, which will mean upholding the default judgement short of this executive intervention.
