The conviction of Ms. Victoire Ingabire, FDU-INKINGI’s Chair, to 15 years in prison, far from being an isolated case, is a strong signal that the RPF regime has sent to the whole democratic opposition. Indeed, the current charges against Ms. Ingabire are somehow the same as those uttered against other opposition leaders convicted by Rwandan courts, namely: Deo Mushayidi, Chairman of PDP- IMANZI and Bernard Ntaganda, President of PS- IMBERAKURI. Ms. Ingabire atones for “the sins” of any democratic opposition.
However, during the hearings, Ms. Victoire Ingabire proved beyond any reasonable doubt, that the charges preferred against her were neither substantiated by any credible evidence nor any verifiable fact; a strong indication for a purely political trial.
When Ms. Victoire Ingabire was sentenced to eight years by the High Court, she was accused of conspiracy against the regime and minimization of genocide. The Supreme Court retained these two charges and added the crime of spreading rumors. The charge of conspiracy against the regime was based on the creation of an alleged armed rebellion: the so-called Coalition of Defense Forces (CDF) whose existence was demolished during the hearings at the Supreme Court by the same disillusioned witnesses that the Prosecutor had previously produced before the High Court. A new witness even revealed in great details how the plan was concocted at the Mutobo reeducation camp, Ruhengeri.
The platform FDU-INKINGI, IHURIRO-RNC and AMAHORO-PC expresses its full and unconditional support to Ms. Victoire Ingabire.
