Brugiere, nicknamed the 'Sheriff' for his erstwhile penchant to carry a Magnum pistol, is famous for rounding up vanloads of terror suspects. He played a crucial role in bringing to book Carlos the Jackal and Libyan officials convicted of blowing up planes in the '80s. This time he wants Kagame and his aides, including Nyamwasa, brought before a UN court to be tried for war crimes and genocide. He is convinced that Kagame instructed his rebel Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) to destroy the plane in which president Habyarimana was travelling.

"The investigations undertaken have clearly shown that for the RPF, the physical elimination of President Juvenal Habyarimana was the necessary precondition for seizing power by force, and was inscribed in a vast plan worked out to this end," reads the indictment. "The final order...was given by Paul Kagame himself in a meeting held in Mulundi on March 31, 1994."
