According to Rwanda’s Daily The New Times, Eugene Rwamucyo, a Genocide suspect who was discovered working in a hospital in Northern France last week, was served with a life sentence by a Gacaca court in Butare, a month ago. Rwamucyo was tried in absentia and found guilty of Genocide crimes committed in Butare during the 1994 Genocide. “He was a member of the notorious “war committee” that planned and executed Genocide against the Tutsi in Butare,” the president of Ngoma Gacaca court, Mr. Ndahumba was quoted as saying. He is accused of planning the killing of Tutsi students and patients at the University teaching hospital which saw over 400 people killed. Rwamucyo is also on the list of 45 people suspected to have played a key role in the killings.
