The High Court Chamber for International and Cross-Border Crimes has postponed the rulings in FLN terrorism trial involving Paul Rusesabagina, and 20 co-accused suspects.

The verdict which was initially scheduled on Friday 20th August has been postponed to 20th September 2021 at 11a.m.

Rusesabagina who was the President of MRCD-FLN terror group was arrested in August last year. He has been undergoing trial along with 20 co-accused terror suspects including Callixte Nsabimana alias Sankara, the former spokesperson for the terror group.

The suspects face charges including the formation of an irregular armed group, membership of a terrorist group, financing terrorism, murder as an act of terrorism, arson as an act of terrorism, attempted murder as an act of terrorism, and assault and battery as an act of terrorism.

The crimes were committed since 2018 when the aforementioned terror group plotted attacks to Rwanda which claimed lives of innocent residents in the Southern Province.

During trial proceedings, the Prosecution sought life sentence for Rusesabagina and 25 years for Callixte Sankara.
