Canada hosts a large population of Rwandans ranging from refugees, international students, private investors and genocide perpetrators.
Canada is also home to a number of individuals hostile to the state. For years, the country has also been a safe haven for many high profile genocide perpetrators.
The vast North American country hosted the controversial Dr. Léon Mugesera who resided in Quebec.
He was deported to Rwanda on charges of the 1994 genocide against Tutsis.
Mugesera, a former Laval University lecturer, was found guilty of inciting genocide in a fiery anti-Tutsi speech in 1992 which triggered 100-day genocide against Tutsi in 1994.
Currently, Mugesera is serving a prison sentence in Rwanda.
Almost 835 fugitives have been indicted by Rwanda’s prosecution across 34 countries in the world.
