France to set up new court to investigate genocide





The French government has announced that it will set up a new panel to try cases of genocide and war crimes committed in France or abroad.

The new court would speed up the way genocide cases are tried where the suspect is on French territory but the process involves several jurisdictions.

The unit is to include linguists and specialists with historical knowledge.

French authorities are currently hearing several cases against Rwandan genocide suspects living in France.
