Rwandan woman to stand trial in Concord on immigration charges
Woman accused of lying about role to gain US entry
CONCORD, N.H. - A federal courtroom in New Hampshire is about to become a laboratory for analyzing the 1994 genocide in Rwanda and what role - if any - a Manchester woman from Rwanda played. Prosecutors say 41-year-old Beatrice Munyenyezi lied on applications to enter the United States in 1995 and obtain citizenship in 2003. They say she ordered the rapes and murders of Tutsis in Butare during the 3-month genocide of about 800,000 people. She denied any involvement.
