Prosecution strategy


transtlated version

My name is Thomas Kamilindi. I’m a journalist with the Voice of America in Washington. I witnessed well, I testified in the Media case and I waived my protection. And let me state that my daughter, who was five in 1994, was killed. And this is the basis of my question. Those who are being tried this is a question to the Prosecution or Office of the Prosecutor or to Prosecutor: Those who are being tried did not really take up the machetes. Can there be prosecution for moral responsibility? Because there was a moral responsibility issue in all what prompted the genocide. There were decisions that had been taken by persons which impacted on the perpetration of the genocide. So could the ICTR prosecute persons who bear moral responsibility? That’s my question.


Mr. Stewart, quickly, please.
