Rwanda : Judgment in Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza’s case against Rwanda

INGABIRE VERDICT

RWANDA: FDU-INKINGI CONDEMNS THE RWANDAN REGIME’S TACTICS TO CONCOCT CRIMINAL CHARGES AGAINST ITS LEADERSHIP.

We have learnt, from reliable sources,  that the ruling party in Rwanda, RPF, is repeating its old dirty tactics of using false identities to catch unsuspecting members of the opposition. In this regard, it is sending agents all over the country claiming to be members of FDU-Inkingi in order to trap innocent citizens and they are also framing people as members of FDU-Inkingi as they desperately seek false charges against the leaders of our party. They are looking for new people to arrest as if the plight of the 8 members of the FDU-Inkingi who are unjustly held by the police were not enough.

RWANDA: FDU-INKINGI SECRETARY GENERAL MR SIBOMANA SYLVAIN AND HIS COLLEAGUE MUTUYIMANA ANSELME IN COURT APPEAL AGAINST POLITICALLY MOTIVATED CHARGES

PRESS RELEASE

 

Mr Sibomana Sylvain and his colleague Mutuyimana Anselme have appeared today December 4, 2017 in court to appeal against the common political charge of encouraging insurrection levelled against critics of the RPF regime. The hearing is taking place when the regime is doing everything possible, including repression and deceit, to uproot le FDU-Inkingi from the Rwanda political landscape. But it also happens at a time when the African Court for Human and People’s rights has ruled in the case of the President of FDU-Inkingi, Mrs Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza, that article 463 (Organic Law 01/2012/OL, that is used to criminalise free speech, like in her case and the case of Sibomana and Mutuyimana, violates the Universal declaration of human rights, the African charter on human and peoples’ rights and the international convention on political and civil rights.
