A Pentecostal pastor accused of mass killings arrested

Jean Bosco Uwinkindi entered the country using the alias Jean Inshitu and was attempting to buy land and settle under that assumed name. Several clergymen have been accused of playing roles in the 1994 genocide. The most senior to be arrested by the ICTR was an Anglican bishop, Samuel Musabyimana. He died in January 2003 before his trial opened. The first prelate to be sentenced by the ICTR, Adventist pastor Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, died at the beginning of 2007, just a week after he finished serving a 10-year sentence. The other priests indicted by the tribunal are all Catholics. Among them Athanase Seromba, a priest from the western parish of Nyange, is serving a life sentence and Emmanuel Rukundo, a former military chaplain, is appealing against a 25-year sentence.
