  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Rwanda paid for flight that led to Paul Rusesabagina arrest | UpFront” – below is their description.

    In a special edition of UpFront, we ask Rwanda’s justice minister about the circumstances surrounding government critic Paul Rusesabagina’s sudden appearance in Kigali, after years of living in exile.

    Human rights organisations, members of the United States Congress and the European Parliament have described Rusesabagina’s rendition to Rwanda as illegal under international law.

    Johnston Busingye admits Rwanda did pay for the plane that transported Rusesabagina to the capital and defends the right of prison authorities to monitor the correspondence between the political dissident and his legal counsel. The Rwandan government has charged Rusesabagina with “terrorism-related offences”.
