simbikangwa-bobigny

The sentence of 25 years of imprisonment for “genocide and complicity in crimes against humanity” has been confirmed after the appeal trial held from the 25th of October to the 3rd of December 2016 at the Assize Court of Bobigny.

Pascal SIMBIKANGWA has already been sentenced to the same sentence of the 14th of March 2014 after a two month trial at the Assize Court in Paris.

Arrested in Mayotte for selling forged documents when he was already wanted by Interpol for genocide, the former captain of the Rwandan army, a member of the intelligence services of the Habyarimana regime, was close to the late president and was nicknamed “the torturer” by opponents of the regime that would lead to the genocide of the Tutsi in 1994.
