Rwanda: “How I am treated will tell us a lot about the nature of the Rwandan government…”, Peter Erlinder

In an interview he had with Olivier Nyirubugara before flying to Kigali early this week, Professor Peter Erlinder was asked:
“How do you think you will be welcomed in Kigali?”
Professor Erlinder’s answer was:
“Well, if Kigali is a country which respects the rule of law and concept of freedom of expression and freedom of speech, I should be treated as any other professional would be. Of course how I am treated will tell us a lot about the nature of the government and the nature of prosecution against Madam Ingabire.”
Watch the interview:

Now that Professor Erlinder is arrested by Police in Kigali, the world will probably start to understand that the RPF-led Rwandan government will go to all extremes to silence anyone who dares bring the truth to the surface.
