Rwandan Prosecutor withdraws appeal against bail granted to opposition politicians from PS-Imberakuri and FDU-Inkingi
Kigali – Seven opposition politicians from PS-Imberakuri and FDU-Inkingi appeared on Monday before the High Court.

Speaking to reporters, Maitre Gatera Gashabana, the lawyer defending opposition politician Bernard Ntaganda and his colleagues, welcomed the decision of the state to end its quest to have the seven accused behind bars.
The prosecution did not say exactly why it had chosen to respect the bail decision of the lower court.
