Rwanda justice

Another Rwandan Hutu has been convicted for his part in the genocide of 1994, in which 800,000 were murdered. Joseph Mpambara was sentenced to 20 years in prison for torture and ordering the murder of women and children. Mpambara, who had been living in the Netherlands since 1998 was arrested by the Dutch three years ago. Last month a former army chaplain was gaoled for 25 years for genocide (see my blog of March 1st).

The wheels of justice continue to turn. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda has so far completed 29 cases and has another 23 in progress.
