The Rwandan government on Monday rejected any "form of threat" over its citizens living in Britain as recently voiced by Metropolitan Police in London, noting that "unveiling identities of people whose lives are supposedly threatened without a shred of evidence, is both unfair and unjust. "

The Rwanda government's response comes one week after the Britain-based The Times published an interview by a senior local police officer, who warned that a Rwandan suspected of being part of the assassination threat against his exiles counterparts (living in London) was stopped at the Eurotunnel terminal in Folkestone, Kent, with a mission to kill two alleged members of a Rwanda opposition group living in Britain.

In a statement issued in Kigali, the Rwandan government condemned the attitude of the Metropolitan Police which have not approached its embassy in London with any evidence of these allegations.

"The Government of Rwanda would expect the Metropolitan Police to make a full and public retraction of their previous statements, " a news release made available to Xinhua said.

According to the same source, manipulation of media and opinion by individuals and groups engaged in criminal activities in Britain against Rwandan people and the "tarnishing of our nation's image" should not be given any value.
