Ex Rwandan Gynaecologist faces trial in France for genocide, crimes against humanity

A former Gynaecologist from Rwanda, Sosthene Munyemana, is now on trial in France on charges of genocide and crimes against humanity.

The case, filed in Bordeaux in 1995, accuses Munyemana, who has resided in France since 1994, of organizing torture and killings during the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

The trial focuses on his alleged involvement in events in Tumba, where he had an office and is said to have locked people from the Tutsi population inside before they were taken away to be killed.

Despite his admission of having the key, Munyemana claims he allowed Tutsi people to seek refuge in the office, while prosecutors argue that he subjected them to inhumane conditions.

The trial, long-delayed, highlights the passage of 28 years since the initial complaint was filed in France.
