Extradition decision did not break European Convention

The European Court has ruled that Sweden's decision to extradite a Rwandan accused of war crimes to his homeland was not against the European Convention. After being held in custody for three years, the man was released in July after a decision from the Swedish Supreme Court.

The man maintained that he would not get a fair trial in Rwanda, but the Swedish government disagreed and believed there were guarantees. According to news agency TT, this view of the Rwandan judicial system sets Sweden apart from all the other EU countries.
