Mrs. Bellancille Umlukobwa, of the association of genocide widows (AVEGA-AGAHOZO) and Mr. Theodore Simburudali, of the association for the defense of the interests of genocide survivors (IBUKA) should meet during their stay the ICTR Prosecutor, Mr. Aboubacar Jallow and the Associate-Registrar Mr. Eveerard O'Donnell.
Their visit will end Wednesday. They already met last week in New York the ICTR President, Mr. Dennys Byron at the time of the general assembly of the United Nations to which they assisted. The President had gone there to present the ICTR semi-annual report.
The two survivor leaders presented in New York a memorandum on the compensation for genocide. They should defend in Arusha a request for transfer of the archives of the ICTR.
This Tribunal must theoretically complete, by the end of the 2008, its first instance trials. Already the diplomatic representative of Rwanda expressed the wish that its archives be entrusted to him.
