In Chapter 14, Philpot discusses his meeting with Jean-Paul Akayesu, the former burgomaster of Taba Commune and the first man in history to be convicted of genocide, rape, and other crimes against humanity by an international criminal tribunal. This man vehemently—and convincingly—proclaims his innocence.
