26 March 2013-Last night, Mr. Sylvain Sibomana was rushed to Kacyiru police hospital because of bleeding and shortness of breath.

He has been badly beaten by police officers inside and outside the Supreme Court premises. In Kicukiro police custody, he was thrown against the wall several times and hogtied to a chair and kicked. Our colleague who briefly saw him in the station noted severe bruising to his head and body and a broken tooth: his head and lip are swollen, and he can’t either walk or stand normally. We don’t know whether there is a reason to fear for a fractured skull, cracked ribs or worse.

A few of Kigali based diplomats visited the police station but were told that he was not there. This afternoon, Barrister Iain Edwards representing political prisoner Victoire Ingabire, stayed hours at the police station without a chance to speak to Mr. Sylvain Sibomana undergoing police grilling.
He urgently needs an urgent independent medical care.

Umunty nta ntwaro umufatanye nta muntu agiriye nabi, mbese kubana mu bwuherane bizakunda? Ahhhaaa. None se ko Kizingenza avuga ko atazongera kwiyamamaza muri 2017, aho sa machine politique iri ready to cope with the situation? We have to change our way of thinking kugira ngo tubashe kubaka u Rwanda rwacu. Aho bamwe ntibakeka ko bufite uburenganzira k’u Rwanda kurusha abandi? Biteye isoni iyo twirirwa turatira abanyamahanga ko iwacu byose ari byiza ariko batubaza bati mbese biriya tubina bwo gishyira akabya k’uminywa y’abantu mubivigaho iki mais maze tukabura icyo tuvuga?
