Erlinder Wanted for Prosecution in Rwanda

Do you like this post?

The Rwandan prosecution insists that Peter Erlinder must go back to face charges of genocide denial. This was announced by the Rwandan chief prosecutor, Martin Ngonga, speaking to journalists. He said the government had no plans to drop the charges.

Erlinder was arrested in May last year when he arrived in Rwanda to represent her client opposition leader Madame Victoire Ingabire. His case negatively spotlighted Rwanda, a country that is often credited for rapid economic growth. Erlinder was eventually released much to the dislike of the Rwandan regime due to pressure from the United States. 

The Rwandan government is yet to release the charges that Erlinder faces, and this is seen by many as an attempt at stifling free speech.
