Dear Mbonera Theophile,

My name is Ishimwe Rugira Gisele I am journalist at Kigali Today and I would like to ask the MINIJUST for information on minor rape cases in the courts of Rwanda in the years of 2017, 2018 and 2019. I am in the process of preparing a report that will soon be released to Kigali Today.

It is in this context that I ask you the information based on the law no 04/2013 of 08 February 2013 relating to access to information in Rwanda.

Best regards,

Théophile Mbonera, Ministry of Justice

Hello. The information you are requesting is detained by courts. It would
require the Minijust, to first write to the Supreme Court requesting that
info, wait for the answer, then come back to you. I advise that you
directly request the info to the Courts' Speaker (umuvugizi w'inkiko).
Yours sincerely.
