African Rights and Redress are two NGOs based in London while Ibuka is Rwanda's main organization for genocide survivors. Lawyers without borders and the French CPCR (Collectif des parties civiles pour le Rwanda) are also expected to attend the conference.
"We will trade ideas on what we could do and how to do it", Executive Secretary of Ibuka Janvier Forongo told Hirondelle News Agency. "Compensation are still a thorny problem 17 years after the genocide ended", he added. He stressed that restitution or payment of looted belongings was particularly difficult. "People who were convicted are insolvent or don't want to pay", he explained.
