A colleague says a U.S. law professor charged in Rwanda with denying the country's 1994 genocide remains jailed.

Gena Berglund says she spoke Friday with U.S. embassy officials in Kigali, Rwanda who attended the hearing for professor Peter Erlinder. Berglund has worked with Erlinder in Minnesota on humanitarian issues.

Berglund says a judge in Rwanda is expected to issue a decision in Erlinder's case Monday.
