Finnish genocide trial in Rwanda

Breaking News

A Finnish court has moved to Rwanda to hear evidence in the genocide trial of a former Rwandan preacher who moved to the Scandinavian country in 2003.

Finland has charged Francois Bazaramba with genocide and 15 counts of murder in Rwanda in 1994.

Finnish law allows prosecutions for crimes against humanity wherever they are committed.

If found guilty, Mr Bazaramba, 58, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. He denies all the charges.
