UK MPs have called up their government to arrest and extradite fugitives accused of committing the Genocide against the Tutsi, who still roam freely in the European country, TNT has learnt

The legislators, according to a statement from the Rwandan High Commission in the UK, asked the British Minister for the Home Office why their Government is not taking the necessary action.

Several fugitives, including five indicted key fugitives responsible for the Genocide committed against the Tutsi, remain scot-free in UK, 25 years after the Genocide.

This call was made during series of events organized both in London and Scotland to mark the 25th commemoration of the Genocide against the Tutsi.

The five have on several occasions been arrested over the indictments issued by Rwanda National Prosecutions Authority (NPPA), but have always been released with no charge.

Rwanda has always maintained that if they cannot be extradited, they should at least be tried in UK but none of these options has been pursued by their British counterparts.

Speaking on behalf of the UK Government, Lord Bates, the UK Minister of State at the Department for International Development, said that the atrocities of the past must not define Rwanda.

Recently, Britsih Metropolitan Police announced they are to start investigation on five Rwandan genocide suspects. However, they said it will take at least from three years to five.

The five deny allegations.
