Rwanda’s military tribunal on Wednesday charged 25 suspected rebels of the Rwanda National Congress (RNC), a terrorist organization formed by Rwandan dissidents according to the government, with belonging to an illegal military outfit, treason, forming an illegal military force and conniving with foreign countries to destabilize Rwanda.

The suspects, including 17 Rwandans, four Burundians, three Ugandans and one Malawian appeared at Nyarugenge Military Tribunal in Rwanda’s capital Kigali, where the prosecution accused that the suspects were armed in neighboring Burundi in 2017 before being transferred to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) for military training.

They fought with the DRC army in May this year in eastern DRC, where they were captured and handed to the UN force who later handed them to Rwanda, according to the prosecution. Enditem
