Leon Mugesera came to Canada as a refugee in 1993 and has fought deportation for over 16 years, claiming he faced certain death if he was returned to Rwanda. He lost his final battle to avoid deportation on January 23.
Facing court in Kigali on Thursday, he said, ‘I need more time to find a lawyer. I’ve asked the prosecutor to wait. Within one or two months I will know who my lawyer will be.’
The case was adjourned until April 2.
