Genocide arrests

Five genocide suspects were recently arrested in the UK, where they had fled and were seeking asylum.

Among the five, who were all senior leaders of the Hutu militia during the Genocide, is one Vincent Bajinya, who has been allegedly working for a London-based charity as a doctor; Emmanuel Ntezilyayo, Charlesall Munyaneza and Celestin Ugirasebuja. Contacted Saturday, Justice Minister, Tharcisse Karugarama told The New Times that the five suspects were arrested by British police and would appear in court to determine their deportation.

Rwanda had previously asked that the UK and other European countries hand over suspects for trials, but the process has been slow as the majority of nations don’t support the death penalty.
