This is the only serious account of the workings of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, in Arusha, Tanzania. The tribunal has tried fewer than 50 cases and achieved maybe 40 convictions. It’s part of the story of Rwanda, that nobody’s ever paid much attention. Ask anybody if they know about the Rwandan genocide and they’ll say yes. But ask them if they know who the Pol Pot figure was, or what was the name of the party, and it strangely draws a blank.
