Rwanda: SOS for DR Theonest Niyitegeka

Information from the family of DR Theoneste Niyitegeka indicates that his life is hanging by a hair’s breadth after he was thoroughly beaten by prison officials at Mpanga prison.  After witnessing the state of his health, his family reckon that only a miracle can save his life.

Relatives said that the incident took place following a visit from his lawyer on the 7th of February 2014. The lawyer went to explore with him the prospect of taking his court appeal outside of the Rwanda jurisdiction.
