Rwanda's Prosecution Won't Rest Until The Rwigaras Are Sentenced

Prosecutor-General Jean Bosco Mutangana, has told journalists that his office is not satisfied with the high court's ruling in the case involving former presidential aspirant Diane Rwigara, her mother and four others, who were tried in absentia. The six were accused of inciting insurrection, discrimination and sectarian practices, while Diane Rwigara faced separate forgery charges. The high court dropped all charges and found her not guilty of insurrection, after spending a year in prison.
