Canada's War Crimes Act

You can run but you can't hide here in Canada ... Rwandan convicted is first to be found guilty under Canada's War Crimes Act for his role in the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, in which 800,000 people were killed. The following is a blurb copied from the National Post on Saturday, May 23, 2009.

"We hope that today's precedent-setting verdict marks a turning point, signaling that from this day forward Canada will vigorously pursue justice against modern-era war criminals who enjoy impunity in this country," Frank Dimant, executive vice-president of B'nai Brith Canada said in a statement. "In the case of Nazi-era criminals, unfortunately it is likely too late to use this prosecution remedy, which rests largely on the testimony of witnesses."
