The assets of suspected Rwandan genocide perpetrator Félicien Kabuga in Kenya have not been released by a court.

According to local media, the Kenya anti-corruption court denied Mr. Kabuga’s son Nshimyumuremyi Donatien’s request to provide his elderly mother access to rent from the property in the nation’s capital, Nairobi.

The court upheld decisions of a lower court from 15 years prior.

The 2008 lawsuit aimed to seize Mr. Kabuga’s property and use the earnings to pay genocidal victims and their families. Mr. Kabuga was wanted at the time.

In her court-filed submissions, Mrs. Kabuga stated that there was no evidence to support Kenyan government claims that the contested property was obtained with proceeds of crime.

She also claimed that there was no proof that Mr Kabuga used the rent collected from the house to evade arrest.

Mr Kabuga, one of the key suspects of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, was arrested in France in 2020 after evading capture for about 26 years.

He has been charged with several counts of genocide and crimes against humanity.
