The conditions of detention of Ms. Victoire INGABIRE UMUHOZA, Chair of FDU INKINGI, are intolerable and immoral. (16.10.10)
A well informed source confirmed that the conditions of detention of Ms. Victoire INGABIRE UMUHOZA, Chair of FDU INKINGI, are intolerable and immoral.
- Last night the jailers kept her mattress and linens away from her and she spent the whole night seated and handcuffed. In the morning they refused to give her hygienic stuff (tooth brush, toothpaste and towel)taken for her use.
- The food taken to her for lunch was returned untouched in the evening. We don't know if the jailers took the food to her or not.
- The water and the bucket were refused.
The government does not provide any food and our people are not allowed to reach her. The jailers seam to follow very strict orders.
The lawyer and the Red cross were informed this evening and the chief of the detention facility promised to discuss the issue with the people who determined the detention conditions. It's intolerable and immoral to keep a detainee in such conditions.
As for rumors of a possible poisoning, the detainee is in the hands of the regime. They will be accountable.
