The extradition hearing is underway in respect of five defendants who are accused of participating in the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. This is the second extradition request; the first was discharged by the High Court in 2009 on the grounds that there was a real risk that the defendants would suffer an unfair trial in Rwanda.
The hearing is expected to last approximately 8 weeks.
James Lewis QC and Ben Brandon represent the Government of Rwanda.
Helen Malcolm QC and Rachel Kapila represent two of the defendants.
