Canadian high court says Rwandan accused of war crimes must be deported

[JURIST] The Supreme Court of Canada [official website] Tuesday ruled unanimously [text] that Rwandan Leon Mugesera [CTV profile], accused of inciting genocide, must be deported from Canada. In 1992 Mugesera gave a speech in Rwanda encouraging Hutus to kill Tutsis, a speech the Supreme Court of Canada concluded could be reasonably viewed as a crime against humanity. Lawyers for Mugesera had argued that their client did nothing to incite the genocide and instead aided in protecting Tutsis during the violence. It is unclear when the deportation is to take effect or whether Mugesera has any further options to appeal his case. Reuters has more.
