Suspected Rwanda Genocide Financier Appears In Court

Suspected Rwanda Genocide Financier Appears In Court 

Will Ross | BBC World Service

Félicien Kabuga was once one of Rwanda’s richest men. A man accused of being a key financial backer of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda has appeared before a court in The Hague. Félicien Kabuga is charged with genocide and crimes against humanity, which he has previously denied. During the pre-trial hearing he asked for a new lawyer, after having criticised his defence team.

Mr Kabuga, 88, had been one of the most wanted genocide suspects, until his arrest in France two years ago. The former businessman is accused of having paid for the militias that carried out the massacres. He also helped set up and fund Radio Milles Collines – the radio station that encouraged people to kill ethnic Tutsis.
