Arusha, March 23, 2010 (FH) - Italy took in on Tuesday Father Hormisdas Nsengimana, a catholic priest who was acquitted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) in November 2009.

 

"Following fruitful negotiations between the ICTR and the Italian embassy in Tanzania, Father Hormisdas Nsengimana was allowed to leave Arusha for Italy where he arrived this morning with his French lawyer, Emmanuel Altit", ICTR spokesperson Roland Amoussouga told Hirondelle News Agency.

Nsengimana was rector of the Christ-Roi College in Nyanza during the genocide in 1994.

In February 2009, the prosecution urged a life sentence for the Catholic priest accused of supervising the killings of ethnic Tutsis at his College. However, the Chamber considered the evidence brought against Nsengimana too shaky for conviction.

The defendant was acquitted on November 17.

"Father Nsengimana should participate to pastoral activities along with other priests in a northern Italy parish", Amoussouga added.

The ICTR already has three other acquitted persons in its care whilst seeking a host country for them:  former Minister of Transport Andre Ntagerura, General Gratien Kabiligi and Protais Zigiranyirazo, a brother-in-law of the late president Habyarimana.

Other persons acquitted by the ICTR are former mayors Ignace Bagilishema and Jean Mpambara, who are now in France; Emmanuel Bagambiki, who lives in Belgium; and former Minister of Education André Rwamakuba, who joined his family in Switzerland.

I really like the information provided in this article. Installing solar panel will drastically reduce the green house gas emissions (carbon footprint) and electricity bill of ones house holds, Even though solar panel don’t emmidiately pay for themselves 5 to ten years they are still a very wise investment.
