Rwandan court-martial overrules jurisdictional objection by retiree

A court-martial in Rwanda has overruled the objection of an accused brigadier general that the court lacked jurisdiction over him because he was retired. The court also rejected a contention that the military judge had to be senior to the accused. The retired general and his co-accused are charged with spreading harmful propaganda and rumors about the state. Details here.
