Victoire Ingabiré Umuhoza home safe

FDU-Inkingi, 02.22.10

Kigali 22 February 2010

I am home and safe.

This morning my political organisation, FDU-UDF INKINGI informed the national and international community about my request for a temporary refuge. It’s true I was for many hours today inside the British High Commission in Kigali. We discussed the current political situation in Rwanda and threats to opposition leaders and I still expect that all the stakeholders will do the utmost for a peaceful democratisation of Rwanda.

However, the police harassment is still on the agenda because the CID persistently summoned for fresh questioning this evening. I like to make it public, that from now on during this night and all next police interrogations; I will, if necessary,  use my constitutional right to silence until my case is taken to a court of law.

Mrs. Victoire Ingabire Umuhoza
