Genocide trial to be held in Rwanda for first time
Kigali: The first genocide suspect to be transferred by an international genocide tribunal to Rwanda has arrived in the country`s capital.
Rwandan officials said the transfer shows that the international community is confident that Rwanda`s court system can provide a fair trial.
The Tanzania-based International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda approved the transfer of Jean Uwinkindi, a pastor, who arrived in Rwanda on Thursday evening.
Uwinkindi was arrested in Uganda in 2010 on genocide-related charges. He allegedly led groups of armed killers against Tutsi civilians during Rwanda`s 1994 genocide.
Extremist Rwandan Hutus killed more than 500,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus during the genocide.
