Spokesman Jirko Patist said he was pleased the court had accepted evidence of Basebya's involvement.
"The suspect recruited youths and incited them to commit genocide, to commit murders," he said. "The court called her an essential link in the genocide."
Basebya immigrated to the Netherlands in 1998 and gained citizenship in 2004, before her crimes were known. She was prosecuted as a Dutch citizen, though war crimes can be prosecuted anywhere.
Three other Rwandans have been arrested in the Netherlands for their alleged role in their nation's genocide -- two were extradited to the Rwanda tribunal in Tanzania and the third was convicted in a Dutch court of war crimes and sentenced to life imprisonment.
