#RDC #Rwanda Bernard #Lugan a tout dit, sans pillage du #Kivu par #PaulKagame, #Kigali perdrait 50% de ses revenus. Le monde est-il en train se fondre sur Kagame qui ne peut plus siphonner la RDC facilement? À suivre.. @Presidence_RDC @RDC_Minafet @FARDC_off @jumuiya @SADC_News

I don't think it was intentional but self political interest.However,choosing Rwanda as worst nightmare,worse than persecution back home or making the riskiest journey to Europe,thus best deterrent,Boris indirectly exposes Kagame regime. UK gov swimming upstream selling Rwanda.

British PM Boris Johnson helped the world understand Rwandan dictator General Paul Kagame. According to Johnson, no asylum seeker will dare flee to UK because evil awaits. They will be dumped to Rwanda, the most vicious totalitarian state of 21st country. Scary thought indeed.

8/8This, especially since the regime itself does not hide this criminal policy. In November 2019, General Kagame had warned those who go to prison and "who start playing those games again » (expressing legitimate criticism) that he would put them "where they belong".

7/8All these precedents should be enough reasons to take the full measure of the threats against Aimable Karasira and his companions and take all possible measures to avoid this new drama in Rwanda.@benmoran @anjansun @CanadaauRwanda invidious.fdn.fr/bI-mbWP_RQg

6/8Venant Abayisenga suffered the same fate, as when he was released from prison in January 2020, he denounced the threats on his life, and in June 2020, he was again the victim of enforced disappearance and his fate remains unknown two years later. @POTUS @sophie_neiman

5/8The best known precedent is the case of @kizitomihigo. After his release from prison he was warned that he would be killed if he did not stop singing for peace. Despite having warned different actors of these threats, he was tortured to death in his cell on February 16 2020.

4/8 For instance in April 2022, Aphrodis Matuje publicly denounced the threats against his person, explaining that his life was in danger. Since May 26 2022, he has been missing again and no one knows his fate at present. @OsloFF @dw_freedom @freedomhouse

3/8 We believe that these threats should be taken with the utmost seriousness given the Rwandan regime's sad record of death threats against critical voices followed by actual executions or enforced disappearances. @PScotlandCSG @DanielBekele @SophieHRW @ShanthaHRW

2/8 On May 30 2022, taking advantage of a public hearing, Aimable Karasira, one of those prisoners, denounced the tortures he and his fellow prisoners were currently undergoing and explained that their torturers had said they would execute them once @CHOGM2022 was over.
