German will today extradite to Rwanda a man identified as Twagiramungu Jean who is suspected to have been involved in the Genocide against the Tutsi in 1994.

Twagiramungu the former teacher in Gikongoro municipality was arrested two years ago and has been battling extradition in different courts of the European country until he exhausted all legal means.

He was arrested from the German city of Frankfurt, according to Rwandan prosecution.

Rwanda Prosecution spokesman Nkusi Faustin has told IGIHE that the fugitive is expected to arrive in Rwanda today at 2:00 pm.

"He is the first Genocide fugitive to be extradited from Germany, but in 2014 a court there handed a 14-year jail sentence to Onesphore Rwabukombe, a former district mayor, after he was convicted of a role in the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi."

Rwanda has continued to request other countries to extradite fugitives of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, however, some countries remain reluctant to send fugitives to Rwanda, or even try them in their courts of law.
