The South African government has received a blistering public rebuke for allowing one of the worst perpetrators of the Rwandan genocide to escape from South Africa in 2018 and for continuing to frustrate international efforts to track him down. The Daily Maverick reports that Serge Brammertz, Prosecutor of the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals, told the UN Security Council that South African authorities had refused even to place Fulgence Kayishema, a fugitive from the tribunal, under provisional arrest, when tribunal investigators traced him to Cape Town two years ago, despite an international United Nations warrant for his arrest which all UN members were obliged to implement. Nor had Pretoria even placed him under surveillance and as a result, he escaped from South Africa a year ago and has not yet been found.
