Manchester, NH: Rwandan refugee to stand trial tomorrow on genocide charges

This is just what the federal contractors and the US State Department don’t want to see in Manchester, NH of all places.

Remember it is Manchester’s mayor who is pushing for a moratorium on refugee resettlement in that diversity-challenged city.

We learned from earlier reports I posted here and here that Beatrice Munyenyezi allegedly passed herself off as a refugee (resettled by Catholic Charities!) and the court will determine if she committed fraud by lying* on her refugee application about her role in the Rwandan genocide.

The story is here at the Union Leader (hat tip: Jeannine):

Beatrice Munyenyezi of Manchester is accused of personally participating in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, then lying about it to enter the United States and gain citizenship. She is set to stand trial on fraud charges in U.S. District Court in Concord Wednesday.

Federal prosecutors allege Munyenyezi, 41, was a member and active supporter of the ruling ethnic Hutu party and a ring leader in its radical youth militia — along with her husband, Arsene Shalom Ntahobari.

Munyenyezi, who came to Manchester in 2002, was arrested in 2010. [an earlier report said she was resettled by Catholic Charities in 1999, here—ed]

Prosecutors claim the Hutus carried out systematic and widespread killings of members of the minority Tutsi ethnic group and that Munyenyezi oversaw and participated in killings, rapes and kidnappings of numerous people — mostly Tutsi — from a roadblock in front of a Butare hotel.

The killings that began in April 1994 ended in July when Tutsi rebels invaded Rwanda from neighboring countries and defeated the interim government. An estimated 500,000 to 800,000 people were killed during the three-month period commonly known as the Rwanda genocide.

Be sure to read the rest of the article, but definitely don’t miss the comments!

*Lying—hmmm! sounds familiar, oh yeh, the Iraqi refugee terrorists in Kentucky, here, are charged with the same crime.  Imagine that.
