Researcher and author Francois Graner, who has written several works on the genocide, cannot see the files because of a law protecting presidential archives for 25 years following the death of a head of state, the constitutional council ruled.
Graner plans to take his case to the European Court of Human Rights, "which isn't encumbered by such political considerations", he said.
