Ibuka president, Theodore Simburudari, claims that the Rwandan judiciary has not provided adequate protection for the survivors in the past 15 years. "We find judicial authorities have not done enough to arrest and try those who kill the genocide survivors," the communiqué reads.

Nine women and several children are said to be among the victims, who were allegedly drowned, cut into pieces, beheaded or blown up by hand grenades.
