My this serve as a warning to all world leaders and their military powers that you cannot plot the mass murder of a group, race, or culture, and then go into hiding with the hope that no one will find you..... and if you're the type that wears a pink shirt and tie it will be even easier to hunt you down!
THE TRUTH WILL ALWAYS SURFACE!
Here’s the news concerning this atrocity -- in brief:
A United Nations court issued Theoneste Bagosora with a life sentence today (Thursday, 18 December 2008) for his part in the Rwandan genocide of 1994 where 800,000 people were killed in 100 days. Bagosora faced 11 charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity including being in charge of the troops and Interahamwe Hutu militia who butchered minority Tutsis in Rwanda.
Two other former military officers were also convicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda on Thursday for their role in the mass killings of minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
"Colonel Bagosora is guilty of genocide and crimes against humanity and war crimes," the court said.
The tribunal, based in Arusha, Tanzania, accused Bagosora of leading the troops and Interahamwe Hutu fighters that carried out the killings, which left an estimated 800,000 dead.
Prosecutors said Bagosora, formerly a cabinet director in the defence ministry, assumed control of military and political affairs in Rwanda after Juvenal Habyarimana, then Rwanda's president, was killed when his plane was shot down.
Bagosora was said to have stormed out of peace talks in Tanzania saying he was returning to Rwanda to "prepare the apocalypse".
