Fugitive From Netflix True Crime Series World's Most Wanted Has Been Captured

Fugitive From Netflix True Crime Series World's Most Wanted Has Been Captured

One of the fugitives from Netflix true crime series World's Most Wanted has been captured.

Félicien Kabuga is one of the subjects of the five-part series, which tells the stories of the planet's most sought-after suspects, the heinous crimes they allegedly committed and how they've managed to evade capture.

However, Kabuga was finally caught on 16 May, when he was arrested in a dawn raid in Asnières-sur-Seine, near Paris, France.

He has now been charged with genocide and crimes against humanity and is due to face trial next year.

During his 23 years on the run since his indictment by the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda in 1997, Kabuga is thought to have used at least 28 aliases, with lockdown helping authorities to pin him down and at long last detain him.

The 85-year-old - who is profiled in the second episode of the show - is alleged to have been the primary financier of the ethnic Hutu extremists, who slaughtered around 800,000 people in 1994.

He is alleged to have paid for the militias that carried out the slaughters, importing hundreds of thousands of machetes into the country. He also founded and funded Radio Télévision Libre des Mille Collines (RTLM), a broadcaster that actively encouraged people to kill those from the Tutsi ethnic group.

At the time, he was the richest man in the country, but his crimes saw a $5m (£4.1m) bounty attached to his head.

His arrest came following 'a sophisticated, co-ordinated operation with simultaneous searches across a number of locations', the chief prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IRMCT) at The Hague, Serge Brammertz, said.

In a statement, he said: "The arrest of Félicien Kabuga today is a reminder that those responsible for genocide can be brought to account, even twenty-six years after their crimes.

"For international justice, Kabuga's arrest demonstrates that we can succeed when we have the international community's support. This result is a tribute to the unwavering commitment of the United Nations Security Council, which established the Mechanism to continue the accountability process in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia.

"This arrest demonstrates the impressive results that can be achieved through international law enforcement and judicial cooperation."
