#FinalVerdict -> French Court Sentences Rwandan Mayors To Life In Prison Over 1994 Genocide

Two former Rwandan officials accused of genocide and crimes against humanity have been jailed for life. The two mayors have been sentenced in France, in what’s being described as a landmark ruling. They’re convicted for their roles in the massacre of hundreds of thousands of Tutsis between April and July, 1994. Around 90 witnesses and experts have testified against Tito Barahira and Octavien Ngenzi. This is the harshest genocide sentence handed down by a French court. In 2014, former army captain Pascal Simbikangwa got 25 years in solitary confinement for genocide and crimes against humanity.
