Léon Mugesera's status still uncertain

Canada's border services agency says a Rwandan man wanted for inciting genocide will be forced to leave the country today. 

Yesterday, a federal court rejected Léon Mugesera's request to stay the deportation order against him. The United Nations committee on torture has asked Canada not to carry out the order, until it can investigate whether he would be safe to return to Rwanda to stand trial.

As of this morning, Léon Mugesera is still in a Quebec City hospital, after suffering an unknown medical issue yesterday.

Susan speaks with Fannie Lafontaine, professor at Laval University, and expert in international criminal and humanitarian law.
