Rwanda Genocide Suspect, Ndereyehe, Released After Arrest In Netherlands

Police in The Netherlands have released a Rwanda genocide suspect Charles Ndereyehe after he was arrested at his home on Tuesday.

The Rwandan government had in 2010 issued an international arrest warrant for Mr Ndereyehe on charges of organising killings in the genocide.

His release has been confirmed by the leader of the foreign-based opposition party FDU-Inkingi, Justin Bahunga.

70-year-old Ndereyeh is a very active member of FDU- The Netherlands. He has been living in the Netherlands for more than 15 years.

On November 5, 2008, Ndereyehe was sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia by the Gikirambwa Gacaca Court after he was found guilty of Genocide.

On April 20, 2010, Rwanda issued International arrest warrants for Ndereyehe. He is also on the wanted list by the International Police.

In 1993 Ndereyehe, accomplished Agricultural specialist and consultant and a founding member of the pre genocide notorious extremist political party, The Coalition for the Defence of the Republic (CDR), was appointed as Director General at the Rwanda Institute of Agronomic Research (former ISAR).

In 2016, the Netherlands extradited to Rwanda Jean Baptiste Mugimba and Jean Claude Iyamuremye who were accused of playing roles in the genocide.

An estimated 800,000 Rwandans were killed in the space of 100 days between April and June 1994.
