Reyntjens discusses RPF behavior in post-genocide Rwanda:
The victim turned bully; like elsewhere, this phenomenon happened in Rwanda, although it was not considered politically correct to acknowledge the reality of widespread ‘disappearances’, assassinations and massacres. An increasing number of Rwandan and expatriate sources from inside and outside the country indicated that before, during and after the genocide, the RPF killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians. Some of these incidents are well documented and a few even received international condemnation. However, most of them were unknown or, at times deliberately, underestimated. From the first days after the RPF’s victory, abuse was veiled in a conspiracy of silence, induced in part by an international feeling of guilt over the genocide and a comfortable ‘good guys-bad guys’ dichotomy. An early report by UNHCR consultant Robert Gersony, who reportedly estimated that between 25,000 and 45,000 civillians had been killed by the RPF between April and August 1994, was suppressed and never released.
UPDATE: The substance of the Gersony report can be found here. It includes:
Large-scale indiscriminate killings of men, women, children, including the sick and the elderly, were consistently reported … Mass killings at meetings: Local residents, including entire families, were called to community meetings, invited to receive information about “peace”, “security” or “food distribution” issues. Once a crowd has assembled, it was assaulted through sudden sustained gunfire; or locked in buildings into which hand-grenades were thrown; systematically killed with manual instruments; or killed in large numbers by other means. Large-scale killings which did not involve such “meetings” were also reported.”
Soldiers asking residents to gather in order to attend a meeting, surrounding them and opening fire on the crowd are the same RPA killings pattern reported in DR Congo by the authors of “maping exercise” draft report.
