Martin Habimana, a prosperous businessman and Vianney Habimana, an ordinary citizen, were tried by the gacaca court of Nyakabanda.
The accused, in his 40s, was convicted for a rape of a young Tutsi woman under the pretext of protecting her from the killers, to the president of the court, Benoit Ngarambe.
The identity of the victim is protected.
After a very controversial first trial, Martin Habimana had asked for withdrawal of the bench last month. He was, thus, tried by an entirely new bench.
Already in 2007, the businessman was tried and sentenced to 18 years in prison for "complicity in the murders of several people" in 1994.
Both men have 15 days, from the date of the judgement, to appeal.
