"Hotel Rwanda" Hero Accused of Funding Terrorism

Posted: October 28th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hotel Rwanda" Hero Accused of Funding TerrorismSubmit Comment
In 2004, Don Cheadle received an Oscar nomination for his role in "Hotel Rwanda" in which he portrayed Paul Rusesabagina, a hotel manager who saved over a thousand Tutsi refugees from genocide during their struggle against the Hutu militia in Rwanda.

Now comes word that the real-life Rusesabagina is facing charges over allegations that he sent money to opposition commanders in order to help finance terrorist activities. The prosecutor has asked the US for help in gathering evidence on some financial transactions that he said originated in San Antonio, where Rusesabagina has a home.

The former hotel manager has denied the allegations, stating that he had not sent any money to Rwanda in years. "It is the latest step in a campaign against me by the Rwandan government that has included public insults, lies and physical harassment," he said.

After "Hotel Rwanda" was released, Rusesabagina was hailed as a hero around the world. Former US president George Bush gave him the presidential medal of freedom in 2005, the highest civilian honor in the US.

If he were really a terrorist wouldn't he have tried killing Bush the day he gave him the medal?

The RPF (who are now in control of Rwanda)are Tutsi, Paul Rusesabagina is a Hutu, who didn't let the twisted views of the Hyambimannara government dictate how he should act through out the genocide.

The Rwanda President hates Rusesabagina with a passion ever since he spoke out against the President who was during the genocide a rebel leader, accusing him of acts of violence. Both Hutu and Tutsies were guilty of extreme violence against each other, it was just the Hutu's who commited genocide.

wait, who is claiming that he's sending money to terrorists? The article only says ''the prosecutor'' but doesn't list the country of origin

Never been a big fan of Tootsie... Never been that big a fan of Dustin Hoffman to be brutally honest.

Look at how dark that mother f*cker is.

It was Rwanda, known for brutality (much like Croatia and other parts of the world) to its own people, but I say we still need reasonable doubt to prove those charges. They are pretty f*cking serious.

This isn't movie news. Movie news is news about movies, it's not news concerning the people portrayed in a movie. Jeez.

And who gives a sh*t. This is between some guy who, apparently, dips his head in charcoal and some country no one in their right mind would ever visit.
