In France arrested a suspect in the genocide in Rwanda. It disappeared 26 years

16 may in France was detained a businessman from Rwanda, félicien Kabuga, accused by the International Tribunal for complicity in genocide, which was organized by the Hutu government against the Tutsi in 1994. As informs Agency France Press, he was a fugitive from justice for almost 26 years.

84-year-old Kabuga was arrested in a house in the town of Asnières-sur-Seine, North of Paris, where he lived under an assumed name for the last three or four years.

The Rwanda genocide was organized by the government, consisting of representatives of the ethnic Hutu against the Tutsi and moderate Hutu. It lasted from April 6 to July 18, 1994, while “Rwandan Patriotic front”, consisting mainly of Tutsis, did not take the country under control.

For the period of the genocide were killed according to various estimates, from 500 thousand to 1 million people – about 20% of the population.

In 1994 he convened the international Tribunal for Rwanda, in 1997, the Tribunal indicted Kabuga charges on seven counts, including complicity in genocide and crimes against humanity. In 2015, the Tribunal was dissolved, and its business was transferred to the International residual mechanism for criminal tribunals.

He was also one of the founders of the radio Libre des Mille Collines incited to murder.

Thus, according to the Agency, the government of Rwanda intend to ask for extradition of Kabuga’s home to prosecute.
