This Article beings by sketching the background of the recent Rwandan Patriotic Front ("RPF") trial, focusing on domestic impunity for RPF crimes and strained relations between Rwanda and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda ("ICTR"). It next describes and analyzes the components of the ICTR-Rwanda agreement: the agreement itself, the RPF trial, and the ICTR prosecutor's assessment of the trial. The Article then explores the larger issues of prosecutorial discretion and independence, complementarily, and victor's justice, while examining the implications for the International Criminal Court ("ICC").
