* The author, an Ethiopian lawyver, earned a LL.B. at Addis Ababa University,
an MCL at UCLA and a Ph.D. in Management from U.S. International University.
In March 1996, he joined the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda as Senior
Trial Attorney prosecuting the first genocide case, as well as other cases, until his
return in July 1997 to teaching at Norfolk State University. The author is grateful to
the Christian Michelsen Institute in Bergen, Norway for providing the necessary
facilities and conducive environment for writing this article in the summer of 1998,
especially Dr. Siegfried Pausewang and Ms. Elin Skaar, to whom he remains
indebted. Justice Richard Goldstone deserves gratitude for starting the International
Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda from scratch and building
them into a bulwark for justice. While many people, in one way or another, helped
write this article, he alone is responsible for any error or lacimca. This article is
dedicated to the unsung Hutu heroes who mustered the courage to break ranks with
their kinsmen and at a tremendous risk to themselves and their families saved many
Tutsi lives.
