“If you believe that the man is a danger or a risk to peace, then you have to make your case in court. But you can’t just do that arbitrarily without making your case,” says Stephane Bourgon who is representing Nkunda.

Rwanda's Supreme Court has ruled that only the country's military court can hear a plea seeking the release of former Congolese warlord Laurent Nkunda, his lawyer said on Saturday.

 Aime Bokanga, counsel for the former leader of the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP), said he was relieved that Nkunda had finally secured a court hearing, but was disappointed the court had not ruled his detention illegal.

Nkunda has been under house arrest in Kigali since January last year.
