Kayishema Fulgence: Rwandan genocide suspect arrested in South Africa (News Central TV)

One of four remaining fugitives from the 1994 Rwandan genocide Kayishema Fulgence has been captured, UN prosecutors say.

When the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) indicted the former police officer in 2001 over an incident in which more than 2,000 Tutsi men, women, and children were burned inside a Catholic church, Fulgence Kayishema had been on the run since.

The UN court that has been trying the genocide suspects stated on Wednesday that Kayishema had been taken into custody in Paarl, South Africa.

Fulgence Kayishema was referred to as “one of the world’s most wanted genocide fugitives” by The Hague-based tribunal, also known as the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (MICT) in a statement.

It said that the individual, who had used several names and fake passports, had been captured as a result of a multinational operation involving numerous nations.

The indictment claims that Fulgence Kayishema had a direct hand in the 15 April 1994 slaughter of refugees who were hiding at the Nyange church in Kivumu, Kibuye prefecture.
