On 29 August 1998, the prosecutor of the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, Carla Del Ponte, indicted Kabuga. In the amended indictment, Kabuga was charged with conspiracy to commit genocide, genocide and extermination as a crime against humanity.[1] He shortly went into hiding as a fugitive.[4]
