Published

on

Taarifa has learnt that Idamange Iryamugwiza Yvonne will appear before the Gasabo intermediate court this Thursday to answer several charges including inciting public disorder, resisting lawful arrest, and aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer.

She was arrested on February 15, 2021, at around 4 PM, during a joint operation between Police and Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB).

Police, upon her arrest, said that since January 31, 2021, Idamange Iryamugwiza Yvonne, 42, had “exhibited behavior that mixes politics, criminality, and madness on different media platforms. This conduct invited the attention and close scrutiny of law enforcement.”

During the arrest, the suspect allegedly used a bottle to cause head injuries to the officer who was immediately taken to Kacyiru District Hospital for medical attention.

The suspect is a popular YouTuber who claims to be an activist, but the content she publishes on her channel has caused irrational reactions including, largely, serving as a mockery to genocide survivors and negating facts surrounding the Genocide against the Tutsi, according to observers.

Sarkozy Could Request To Be Detained At Home

Published

Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy qualifies to request to serve his prison sentence from home, court said on Monday.

The 66-year-old Sarkozy was found guilty of corruption and abuse of office and was ultimately sentenced to a three-year prison sentence with two years suspended.

Taking into account the two years suspended, the sentence of one year jail means it is unlikely Sarkozy will physically go to prison, a punishment that in France usually applies to jail terms in excess of two years.

Sarkozy reamins free, since no arrest warrant has been issued.

Sarkozy was president of France from 2007 to 2012, would be entitled to request to be detained at home, but could be obliged to wear an electronic bracelet.

The prosecution had asked for a four-year prison term, with two years suspended. The crime of corruption of an official carries a maximum sentence of 10 years.

Only one other French president, Sarkozy’s political mentor Jacques Chirac, was put on trial after leaving office, but he was excused from having to attend his 2011 corruption trial because of ill health.

Sarkozy’s two co-defendants, the lawyer Thierry Herzog and former senior judge Gilbert Azibert, were also found guilty and given the same sentence as Sarkozy.

Nicolas Sarkozy will face another trial later this month along with 13 other people on charges related to the alleged illegal financing of his 2012 presidential campaign.
