Rwandan Prosecution Drops Appeal Against Rwigara Acquittal

The National Prosecution Agency in Rwanda has withdrawn its appeal against the acquittal of Diane Rwigara and her mother, Adeline Rwigara, The New Times reports. Prosecutor General Jean Bosco Mutangana had earlier said that his office would appeal the High Court ruling. The Rwigaras, alongside four others who were tried in absentia, were acquitted of  inciting insurrection, discrimination and sectarian practices.

Diane Rwigara leaves Kigali's High Court on December 6, 2018 after the judges dropped all the charges and declared her not guilty of forgery and inciting insurrection.
