Rwandan businessmen sentenced for War Crimes[edit]

Two Rwandan businessmen were sentenced to 10 and 12 years for their role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The two, tried in Belgium, could have faced up to 25 years in prison. They were convicted based on their offers of transportation and weapons to Hutu militas in the planned massacre of Tutsis in a church and a municipal building where Tutsis and Hutus had met.
