ICTR / Trial of Léonidas Nshogoza


ARUSHA, Tanzania, April 30, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Daily press briefing by the offices of the spokesperson for the UN secretary-general and the spokesperson for the general assembly president:


Closing arguments were delivered today before the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in the trial of Léonidas Nshogoza, the Tribunal said.  The accused was an investigator for the defence in an earlier ICTR case.  He is alleged to have tampered with information with intent to fabricate additional evidence and procure false statements in that earlier case.  He now faces four counts of criminal misconduct, including contempt of the Tribunal.


Nshogoza, a Rwanda national, voluntarily surrendered to the Tribunal in early 2008.  His trial began in February.
