More about:

The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), has, concluded its special evidence hearings in the case of Potrais Mpiranya, the Rwandan genocide fugitive believed to be holed up in Zimbabwe.

By our top partner Radio VOP

Mpiranya, a former presidential commander during the genocide in Rwanda, is charged among others with conspiracy to commit genocide.

The special hearings were conducted to preserve evidence for future use if the fugitive is to be finally arrested.

The ICTR, based in Arusha, Tanzania, has pleaded with Zimbabwe to apprehend the fugitive of the genocide that claimed close to a million lives in 1994.

Last year the tribunal trying suspects of the Rwandan genocide complained to the United Nations (UN) Security Council that it was encountering difficulties in tracking a top fugitive believed to be in Zimbabwe.

But Zimbabwe has denied harbouring Mpiranya.
