FEATURED, NEWS, Politics, Rwanda
Paul Rusesabagina, depicted in a Hollywood movie as a hero who helped save Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide, told the New York Times he believed he was flying to Burundi at the invitation of a pastor, but was instead lured to Rwanda and arrested on terrorism charges, Rusesabagina was speaking to the US daily in an interview the paper said had been authorised by the Rwandan government and had taken place in the presence of government officials.

In the bizarre case of Paul Rusesabagina, the leading Rwandan opposition figure who vanished in Dubai on Aug. 28 and showed up a few hours later in a jail cell in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, Trudeau may even be uniquely positioned to step up. That’s the view of Philippe Larochelle, a Montreal human rights lawyer on the legal team Rusesabagina’s family has retained on his behalf. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have described Rusesabagina’s case as both an enforced disappearance and extraordinary rendition, in violatio...
