Bernard Munyagishari, a suspect of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi, was arrested this week in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), after 17 years on the run.
In Europe, Ratko Mladic, Bosnian Serb war crimes fugitive was also arrested in Serbia after 16 years in hiding.
Both Munyagishari and Mladic will be tried for charges of genocide and crimes against humanity. To read more detail about Munyagishari and Mladic, click here.
The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has long supported international mechanisms, which seek justice. For a compilation of Presbyterian policy on genocide, please click here.
We continue to pray that for just and lasting peace throughout the world.
