Liberia, Rwanda watch Leon Mugesera trial closely.

by Phil Taylor the Taylor Report for CIUT

There is a law of politics, and a politics of law. Phil and guest Chris Black investigate the mechanisms of justice in Paul Kagame's Rwanda: even friendly Canada keeps a close eye on the trial of Leon Mugesera because of systematic irregularities. How does one try a genocide case, and what are the rules?

Phil also investigates the inspiring example of Justice Sow, who brought attention to the politicization of the Charles Taylor tribunal.
