The Rusesabagina sham trial comes to an end

Almost a year ago, Hotel Rwanda humanitarian Paul Rusesabagina was kidnapped, taken to Rwanda, arrested, tortured, and put on trial. From the get-go, this “trial” has been seen as a farce by a host of international organizations. This Friday, August 20th, the verdict will come in. Though, President Paul Kagame has already sealed Rusesabagina’s fate by calling him guilty before the judicial proceedings even began.
