Among those allegations is constantly insulting the Head of State President Paul Kagame, provoking possible insubordination within the army and panic among the population. The Council said such information created the impression among prospective investors that the country was not secure.
Police say they are only doing investigations and the final dossier will be handed over to the prosecutions department.
The Editor of UMUVUGIZI, another of the two newspapers suspended, is also wanted by Police, but Mr. Jean Bosco Gasasira is currently abroad and it is not clear if and when he will return to the country.
