Rwandan Intelligence Chief Refuses Extradition From UK to Spain

The British courts will hear a controversial legal battle after Rwanda’s intelligence chief said he would fight an extradition request from Spain over allegations of genocide and terrorism, charges the country’s government insists are politically motivated and insulting.Emmanuel Karenzi Karake, whose legal campaign is being led by Cherie Booth QC, was arrested at Heathrow airport on Saturday under a European arrest warrant following his six-day trip to London.
Speaking on Thursday, Kagame said in a speech, “Any decent Rwandan, any decent African, and even any decent person from these countries cannot accept this. Absolutely not.”
