“Peter Erlinder must face trial”, says the Rwandan prosecutor general

The Rwandan Prosecutor General’s office communicated on Friday that, no matter what, Prof. Peter Erlinder must face trial .
During a press conference, the Rwandan Prosecutor General, Martin Ngoga, confirmed that the trial of that Americal lawyer will take place , even if the US authorities requested that he be pardonned . “His trial will serve as a warning to other foreigners, and they are many, who deny the genocide that took place in Rwanda.”

The US lawyer, Peter Erlinder, was arrested last month in Rwanda , on charges of minimizing the Rwandan genocide. He was in the country to defend Victoire Ingabire.
The Rwandan prosecutor accuses him to be the leader of a group of intellectuals that is working hard to rewrite the history of the genocide that took place in Rwanda.
