Rwanda high court acquits Kagame critic, Diane Rwigara

A High Court in Rwanda has acquitted a critic of government and President Paul Kagame. Diane Rwigara was standing trial on charges of insurrection and forgery.

“Court rules that Diane Rwigara is innocent,” judge Xavier Ndahayo, one of three judges sitting on the case announced to a packed courtroom in the capital, Kigali.

Her mother, Adeline, who was also standing trial along with Diane, was also acquitted by the same court.

It is not known as yet if the state plans to appeal the ruling or when release modalities were going to be finalized.
