On Sunday July 25th the Rwandan government radio station reported that 2 people were arrested for planning an illegal protest for the following Monday.
‘The victims of this unexpected arrest, Mr. Martin Ntavuka - FDU-Inkingi, leader in Nyarugenge district and Mr. Anastase Hagabimana – FDU-Inkingi, leader in Kicukiro District, were handcuffed, beaten and taken to the Remera police detention facility,’ said Salem-News.
Salem-News was told the accused, while guests, were apprehended at the temporary residence of Victoire Ingabire, leader of FDU-Inkingi, one of the opposition parties whose registration has been refused by the authorities. The watchman at the property was left with face injuries including one eye swollen shut. Eye witnesses confirm death threats and ethnic hate abuses hurled on-spot by the officer Karekezi, a CID staff.
