The court made up of international judges ruled that Augustin Bizimungu had complete control of the Rwandan army during the 1994 genocide. He appeared unmoved when handed a 30-year prison sentence for committing genocide and crimes against humanity. Mr. Bizimungu was accused of going to the homes of militants and ordering them to kill all those from the Tutsi people he was accused of referring to as cockroaches. He promised weapons and fuel to burn houses.
Also convicted for genocide crimes is the former head of paramilitary police, Augustin Ndindiliyimana, whom however, was released for time already served.
