Prosecutor General of the Republic Burundi
Dear Prosecutor General,
I write you as a person who is also in his own country concerned with the respect of Human Rights.
Please allow me to draw Your attention to the case of
I like to express my deeply concerned about human rights defender and prisoner of conscience Germain Rukuki who was arrested one year ago and is now sentenced to 32 years in prison. In June, he was hospitalised and underwent surgery for injuries sustained in prison. He has since been returned to prison although he requires continued treatment.
I urge you to overturn Germain Rukuki ’s conviction and immediately and unconditionally release him.
Additionally, I urge you to ensure that Germain Rukuki receives adequate medical treatment as required by his state of health.
Lastly, I urge you to end intimidation and harassment of human rights defenders.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. I am kindly awaiting your reply.
Yours sincerely and respectfully,
