Rwandan genocide lender arrested | Abroad

Kabuga’s arrest was brought to light by the International Criminal Tribunal Residual Mechanism (IRMCT), an international criminal court that finalizes the work of the Yugoslavia Tribunal in The Hague and the Rwanda Tribunal in the Tanzanian city of Arusha.

“This arrest shows that perpetrators of genocide can be held accountable even 26 years after their crimes,” said chief prosecutor Serge Brammertz. “Our first thoughts are with the victims and survivors of the Rwandan genocide. Standing up for their interests is a great professional honor for my office. ” Brammertz thanks the French authorities for their efforts to arrest Kabuga and praises the cooperation with Europol, Interpol and the authorities in the Netherlands, among others.

Kabuga (1935) is brought before the IRMCT in The Hague. Seven charges were brought against him in 1997, all of which relate to the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Kabuga, an ethnic Hutu, is said to have financed the purchase of large numbers of machetes and other weapons in the run-up to the 100-day massacre. In addition, an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were killed.
