By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 02/036/1996

The Tanzanian Government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees have issued a joint statement in which the Government of Tanzania states that all Rwandese refugees can now return to their country in safety and that they are expected to return home by 31 December 1996. Amnesty International fears that some of the refugees may be at risk of serious human rights violations on their return and also fears that they may be forcibly returned.
