Rwanda trial against opposition politician delayed

The trial against Rwanda's top opposition leader has been postponed again.

Rwanda's High Court on Monday did not resume the case against Victoire Ingabire, pushing the next trial session back to Feb. 13.

Ingabire's lawyer, Iain Edwards, described the delay as frustrating. The court case began last September.

The prosecution says that piles of documents retrieved from Holland that serve as state's evidence still need to be translated.

Rwanda accuses Ingabire of supporting rebel activities in Rwanda and Congo. Ingabire has maintained her innocence against charges of genocide denial and ethnic divisionism.
