DOJ States A Local Man Charged for Genocide and Rape

The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Thursday that a 52-year-old man from Stark County has been charged with involvement in genocide.

The Department of Justice said that the defendant is accused of taking part in the killing of Tutsi men, women, and children. They allegedly used a club with nails on it to hit them on the head, and then used a machete to kill them.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) explained the accusations in a press release about the arrest of Eric Tabaro Nshimiye, also known as Eric Tabaro Nshimiyimana from Uniontown.

“According to acting United States Attorney Joshua Levy, Mr. Nshimiye is accused of concealing the truth about the crimes he committed during the Rwandan genocide for almost 30 years. He did this in order to find safety in the United States and take advantage of the benefits of U.S. citizenship.” Nshimiye has been living in Ohio since 1995.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that Nshimiye has been accused of committing several crimes.

Nshimiye was arrested on Thursday morning in Ohio and was held after appearing in federal court in the Northern District of Ohio, according to the DOJ.

“Nshimiye is accused of lying to hide his involvement in one of the biggest human tragedies in history.” According to Levy, the charging documents contain specific accusations about the murder and rape of ethnic Tutsis that occurred while he was studying medicine in Rwanda.

Nshimiye was a medical student at the University of Rwanda campus in Butare, Rwanda in the early 1990s, as stated in the charging documents. “According to Levy, the Hutu majority killed around 800,000 Tutsis, including women and children, in a period of 100 days.” Rwanda is a country in East Africa with a population of over 13 million people.
