US Judge Sends Genocide Perpetrator To Jail For 15 Years

A U.S. District Judge, Linda Reade, has ruled that Gervais Ngombwa, 57, a Rwandan, must serve a 15-year jail term for “helping slaughter scores of people during his country’s 1994 genocide”.

“There isn’t a doubt in my mind that he was an active participant, indeed a leader, of the genocide in Rwanda,” Reade told a courtroom in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Ngombwa has lived in Iowa with his family for two 20 years before being convicted “for immigration fraud caps”, a case that the Anti-Defamation League said is “the most significant U.S. human rights prosecutions in recent years.”
