On Tuesday, Rwanda High Court ruled that the trial against Leon Mugesera would continue despite the accused requesting its suspension.

Mugesera requested that the trial against him be suspended arguing that the High Court had no jurisdiction to try him.

Mugesera also rejected two judges namely Athanase Bakuzakundi and Eugene Ndagijimana, arguing this time that legal procedure doesn’t allow judges who were involved in the pre-trial to sit in the substantive trial.

But the court rejected Mugesera’s argument, saying that the court had already proved that it has jurisdiction to try the case against Mugesera.
