A Twin Cities law professor who was jailed in Rwanda is returning home today. Peter Erlinder is due to arrive at MSP Airport around 12:40 pm. Erlinder was in Rwanda to help defend an opposition presidential candidate when he was arrested May 28th. He was accused of violating Rwandan laws by denying that genocide occurred in the 1990’s – a charge he says is untrue.
