Rwanda, Human Rights Watch in row over bias allegations

Human skulls exhibited at the Genocide memorial in Nyamata, inside a Catholic church where thousands were slaughtered during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda on April 4, 2014Human Rights Watch has reacted angrily to Rwandan allegations of bias in its reporting on the central African nation, saying it has been “misrepresented” and its staff “disparaged”. The statement from the group, released overnight on Monday, came after Rwanda’s justice ministry accused the rights organisation of colluding with terrorists and signalled it may no longer be allowed to work in the country. “Human Rights Watch is deeply concerned that the Rwandan Ministry of Justice has grossly misrepresented the work of Human Rights Watch and disparaged its staff,” the group said in a statement. “Human Rights Watch has worked on Rwanda for more than 20 years, since before the 1994 genocide, documenting abuses against Rwandans and defending the human rights of all, regardless of their political or other affiliation,” said Daniel Bekele, Africa director at Human Rights Watch.
