|Rwandan political prisoner and opposition leader Victoire Ingabire has refused to continue playing the defendant in her show trial in Rwandan President Paul Kagame's kangaroo court and asked her lawyers not to return either. The prosecution has asked for a sentence of life in prison on charges of terrorism, ethnic 'divisionism' and genocide ideology, i.e., challenging the Constitutionally codified history of the Rwandan Genocide. The verdict is scheduled for June 29th, by which time the world is likely to be distracted by one or two more wars 'to stop the next Rwanda,' in Syria and Sudan. KPFA News spoke to one of Ingabire's lawyers about her decision.|
