Every year, the run-up to the annual commemoration of the Rwandan genocide that began on April 1994, generates a flurry of legal activity. This year is no different, with a number of complaints lodged last year continuing or being repeated in 2005. Last week in Spain and France, NGOs from opposing political camps announced they were filing new complaints, while in Rwanda, the start of the gacaca trials is now set for March.

On November 17, over eight years after he began an investigation into the April 6, 1994 attack that cost the life of Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana and triggered the genocide of Tutsis in Rwanda, French judge Jean-Louis Bruguière requested that arrest warrants be issued against nine high-ranking officers in Rwanda's current military, including the chief of staff and the head of the army. He would also like to see the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) prosecute the current Head of State, Paul Kagame, who is protected in France by presidential immunity. However, the ICTR will likely do nothing.
