Callixte Mbarushimana


Callixte Mbarushimana

Callixte Mbarushimana is a Hutu Rwandan and former United Nations employee alleged to have directed and participated in the murder of 32 people in 1994 — including U.N. employees he was hired to protect — during the Rwandan Genocide. Mbarushimana was dismissed from the U.N. in 2001 but in 2004 he won a lawsuit seeking compensation for his dismissal.Citation

] On July 10, 2008, Mbarushimana was arrested at Frankfurt International Airport where he was attempting to board a plane to St. Petersburg, Russia. German authorities are now deciding whether or not to extradite Mbarushimana to Rwanda for trial.cite web| url=http://www.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/africa/07/09/germany.rwanda.ap/index.html | title= Rwandan war crimes suspect held in Germany | accessdate=2008-07-10 ]

Mbarushimana had been hired by the U.N. to deliver supplies to U.N. employees. However, it is alleged that not only did Mbarushimana hand over the vehicles and supplies to Rwandan militias (eg. the Interahamwe) or the military, he was then directly involved in killing people during the genocide. Amongst the U.N. employees Mbarushimana is alleged to have murdered was Florence Ngirumpatse, the director of personnel at the U.N. development office in Kigali.Citation

When war crimes investigator Tony Grieg researched the Mbarushimana case, he interviewed at least 20 people who witnessed the murders and confirmed that Mbarushimana was directly involved. However, Mbarushimana was never indicted for his crimes, possibly because he was not considered to be one of the main organisers of the killings.Citation
