Release of Report to Rwanda on Role of French Officials in the Genocide against the Tutsi

KIGALI, RWANDA—The Government of Rwanda retained a team of lawyers and investigators at Levy Firestone Muse LLP, led by Bob Muse, Josh Levy and Daren Firestone to examine publicly available information on the role of French officials in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi.

That examination culminated in the Muse Report, which can be found here. The Muse Report of December 11, 2017, recommends that based on the publicly available information, a full investigation into the role of French government and military officials in the Genocide against the Tutsi is fully warranted. Rwanda has accepted the recommendation, and Levy Firestone Muse will be conducting this investigation, on behalf of the Rwandan government.

AG nominee also leading probe in NY chokehold case

FILE – In this Dec. 2, 2014 file photo, Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch meets with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. on Capitol Hill in Washington. As the Justice Department opens a civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of an unarmed man in New York City, the prosecutor in charge of the probe is juggling another high-profile role: designated heir to Eric Holder as the nation’s attorney general.

WASHINGTON (AP) – As the Justice Department opens a civil rights investigation into the chokehold death of an unarmed man in New York City, the prosecutor in charge of the probe is juggling another high-profile role: designated heir to Eric Holder as the nation’s attorney general.

The dual positions have placed Loretta Lynch in a public spotlight ahead of Senate confirmation hearings, a period of time when cabinet nominees normally seek a lower profile to avoid providing fodder for critics. She’ll inevitably be questioned about the investigation into Eric Garner’s death, an obvious priority for a Justice Department seeking to address concerns about police use of force and racial bias in law enforcement.

“This case is going to gain public notoriety either way. That she’s handling it certainly gives another reason for people to talk about it,” said Joshua Levy, a Washington lawyer and former counsel to Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider Lynch’s nomination.

Levy, to “help Paula and her legal team navigate a crowded media environment, manage incoming requests and ensure that her story is accurately told. It’s really impossible for anyone in Paula’s situation to manage the daily avalanche of interview requests, let alone try to fact-check the stories that are out there. So it makes sense to get some help.”
