Genocide suspect 2Lt Jean Claude Seyoboka to remain under custody

On 05 December 2016, 2Lt Henri Jean Claude Seyoboka was denied bail by the Military Tribunal.

The former Rwanda Government Forces military officer was recently deported from Canada on grounds of Genocide against the Tutsi, Crimes Against Humanity, murder and rape he is suspected for.
Concluding the pre-trial detention proceedings, the Military Tribunal ruled that 2Lt Seyoboka would remain under detention for 30 days, before the trial of the case on merits, to allow the completion of investigation by the Prosecution.
The Court so decided due to the gravity of crimes the former military officer is suspected for and already available prima facie evidence against him.
