The team is made up of 4 members of the prosecution and of three members of the national police, indicates an official statement in Kinyarwanda consulted on the official website of the Rwandan government.
The council of ministers also set up a commission in charge of the "transfer of cases and end of work" of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR).
The prosecutor general of the republic is the president of the commission while the secretary-general at the ministry of Justice is the vice-president.
It also includes the secretary-general of the ministry of foreign affairs, of the ministry of the Interior and of the Supreme Court.
The ICTR prosecutor, Hassan Bubacar Jallow, plans, if the judges authorize it, to transfer to Rwandan courts three accused already in the custody of the ICTR and another who is still at large. According to the press service of the prosecutor, 14 persons are still at large. At the ICTR, a tracking team is responsible, since the beginning, of the search for fugitives.
The ICTR, which must finish by the end of next year its first instance trials, is constrained to transfer certain cases to national courts, including those in Rwanda.
