Prosecution asks court to reject Mugesera’s appeal
Prosecution today prayed High Court to reject the appeal filed by Genocide suspect, Loen Mugesera on grounds that he violated legal procedures while logging the litigation.
Mugesera was in the High Court to appeal against a decision by the Nyarugenge Intermediate Court which denied him two more months to study his dossier and demand a compete file of his proceedings in Canada, from where he was extradited.
Prosecutor, Jean Bosco Mutangana told court that, “according to the law, a decision taken by the intermediate court before the beginning of the pre-trial is not appeal against. Mugesera cannot appeal against everything that doesn’t satisfy him.”
“The law clearly states that such concern can be combined with the pre-trial verdict and appealed at the same time,” Mutangana told court.
Judge Eugene Ndagijimana adjourned the hearing to Friday June 15 for the court to review the prosecution’s request.
