Rwandan spy chief to face war crimes charges

Rwandan Foreign minister Louise Mushikiwabo has reportedly arrived in London to discuss with UK authorities the arrest of the Director General of Rwanda’s National Intelligence and Security Services, Emmanuel Karenzi Karake.

Rwanda is expected to vehemently contests proceedings seeking Kareke’s extradition to face war crime charges in Spain. A lawyer for Spanish and Rwandan victims, however, says he will be pushing to have Kareke moved to Spain as a soon as possible.

Jordi Palou, who represents victims at the International Forum for Truth and Justice in the African Great Lakes, said Karake should stand trial for his alleged crimes. The arrest of Karake on Saturday, has threatened to strain Rwanda’s relationship with Britain
