Abstract
Member of the Security Group of the Presidency of the Republic (GSPR), Denis Roux, chef d'escadron of the gendarmerie, was sent to Rwanda as technical advisor to the commander of the Presidential Guard from August 26, 1991 to the end of August 1993. He stresses that he did not stay until the “Rwandan genocide” and that he could have been mistaken for his successor with the mobile gendarmerie [Gino Groult].
He officially stopped training the Presidential Guard at the end of 1992 and devoted himself to the training of the mobile gendarmerie, but he added I will then only take care of the Presidential Guard partially. While this was the spearhead of the genocide, Roux assures us that he does not have the feeling of having trained genocidaires. Accompanying President Habyarimana during his visit to Paris [July 17, 1992] Mitterrand warns Roux "of the danger represented by Agathe, the wife or rather the damned soul of the Rwandan president, deemed to be in favor of a solution radical against the Tutsis. "
