Advocacy organizations APRODH Human Rights, Lawyers Without Borders and UNOB say they have seen cases of torture of three people in the prison police in Rumonge Bururi province.

After a raid on Tuesday, April 26 in this region, the representatives of these three organizations show that three prisoners had traces of torture and one of them was quickly transferred to hospital. These high school students Buyengero Burambi and the charge of Information Rumonge arrested April 16 when they shared a drink at the county town of Rumonge.

According to these organizations defending human rights, two students who were studying at the Lycée Communal Muyange in common Burambi had wounds on their testicles, while another College communal Maramvya was evidence showing that he was strongly tied for a long time.

These students (two of them had been part of the movement Palipehutu-FNL) said they were subjected to electrical charges in order to confess to the charge of information they were planning “a coup”.

Alexis Nsengiyumva, the head of the Joint Intelligence in Rumonge, did not deny that he arrested these students, but he said he is not author any cases of torture they allegedly suffered.

APRODH organizations, Lawyers Without Borders (ASF)and UNOB require that public authorities are conducting investigations to identify the perpetrator of the torture that they may be punished according to law.
