In his capacity as mayor of the Gisovu commune in Kibuye prefecture, Mr. Ndimbati directed communal and national police in hunting down refugees who had fled to the hills of the Besesero region.

During approximately 100 days of violence, the attacks led to tens of thousands of deaths and large numbers of wounded. For these and other crimes the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the ICTR, indicted Mr. Ndimbati on charges of genocide and war crimes and issued a warrant for his arrest.

The United States is cooperating with other governments, the United Nations and ICTR to make it harder for Mr. Ndimbati and the others to continue to elude justice. Toward that end, the U.S. has renewed an offer of a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest.

Mr. Ndimbati fled Rwanda in July 1994 and is believed to be living in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. If you or anyone you know has information on his activities and whereabouts, it can be provided with complete confidentiality.

The U.S. guarantees that all reports will be investigated and the identity of all informants will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them.
