Rwanda n prosecutors to appeal verdict for 'Hotel Rwanda ' hero

Rwanda n prosecutors said they would appeal against a 25-year jail sentence handed to Paul Rusesabagina, a one-time hotel manager portrayed as a hero in a Hollywood film about the 1994 genocide.

Rusesabagina's daughter Carine Kanimba, contacted by Reuters after the Prosecutor General's tweet, said the move showed that the trial of her father was politically motivated."The prosecution’s decision to appeal is Kagame's decision to hurt us even more than he already has," she said in a WhatsApp message.

Kanimba also quoted what she said was a statement from Rusesabagina's legal team that said"25 years is already a life sentence. In appealing and asking for more, the Prosecution is just revealing how political this trial is and always was".

Prosecutors had sought a life sentence for Rusesabagina on nine charges, including terrorism, arson, taking hostages and forming an armed rebel group. He was convicted of eight charges.He has acknowledged having a leadership role in the Rwanda Movement for Democratic Change (MRCD), a group opposed to Kagame's rule, but denied responsibility for violence carried out by its armed wing, the National Liberation Front (FLN). headtopics.com

Rusesabagina became a global celebrity after the 2004 film"Hotel Rwanda" depicted him risking his life to shelter hundreds as the boss of a luxury hotel in the Rwandan capital, during the 100-day genocide when Hutu ethnic extremists killed more than 800 000 people, mostly from the Tutsi minority.
