KIGALI (Reuters) – A Rwandan court on Monday said Paul Rusesabagina, a one-time hotel manager portrayed as a hero in a Hollywood film about the 1994 genocide, was guilty of terrorism-related charges.

Beatrice Mukamurenzi, judge said that the defendants should be convicted for their participation in this terrorist group – MRCD–FLN. They attacked individuals in their houses or in their vehicles while on the road.

Rusesabagina, aged 67, was a critic of President Paul Kagame, exiled by Don Cheadle, in “Hotel Rwanda”. He denied the allegations and claimed he had been abducted from Dubai.
