Until the disruptions of 1994, Rwanda’s judiciary system was based on Belgian and German codes and customary law. The main courts of Rwanda were the Constitutional Court, the Court of Cassation, courts of appeals, courts of the first instance, and provincial courts. A court of accounts was responsible for examining public accounts. However, Rwandan courts ceased functioning in April 1994, and the structure of the judiciary system may take years to rebuild.
