MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, Rwanda's spy chief Gen. Karenzi Karake, who is wanted in Spain for war crimes, was arrested in London on a European Arrest Warrant. On Tuesday, he was granted bail of $1.6 million by a court in London.
Karake was to meet Alexander Younger, SIS Chief last Thursday but the meeting was canceled at the last moment, BBC reported citing the sources familiar with the official’s itinerary.
The sources in Westminster neither confirmed nor denied claims about Karake’s alleged engagement with MI6, the news outlet stressed.
Karake’s extradition hearings are scheduled for October. The judge also introduced a number of conditions to ensure permanent monitoring of Karake’s location in Britain.
