Kabuga, Felicien

Félicien Kabuga is accused of committing crimes against humanity and participating in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, principally through financial support. Kabuga was first indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) in 1997. He was President of the Comité Provisoire of the National Defence Fund and President of the Comité d’Initiative of Radio Télévision Libre des Milles Collines (RTLM). In 1999, an international warrant for his arrest was put out charging him with 11 counts, including genocide, conspiracy to commit genocide, and complicity in genocide.

After having fled Rwanda in 1994, Kabuga has remained at large and is believed to have resided in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya amongst other countries.

Félicien Kabuga is one of the most sought after of the remaining 13 fugitives of the ICTR. On 12 May 2008, the United States revived its so-called “Rewards for Justice” programme which offers rewards of up to $5 million for information leading to the arrest of Kabuga.
