A Norwegian court has convicted a Rwandan man living in Norway for participating in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsis and sentenced him to 21 years in prison.

The Oslo district court found Sadi Bugingo, 47, guilty of complicity in the premeditated killings of at least 2,000 Tutsis. It singled out three prolonged attacks in his home town of Kibungo, eastern Rwanda, during April 1994.

 

Bugingo has denied all charges and said he would appeal.

 

The court said that the former businessman participated in the massacres and organised them by transporting armed killers and victims to the sites of the killings.
