Insult The President Of Rwanda And Go To Jail - Supreme Court Rules

A challenge to the law which says it is a crime to insult the President of Rwanda, has been rejected by the Supreme Court in the country who also upheld the jail sentence that comes with it. The new law which stated that anyone insulting President Paul Kagame faces between five and seven years in prison, was challenged by a lawyer, Richard Mugisha who argued it was unconstitutional and undermined freedom of expression. While the court ruled that the law should remain due to the responsibility that the office holds, it also ruled that a law which prohibits writing articles or drawing cartoons that humiliate MPs, ministers or other government officials should be annulled.Also the Supreme Court which upheld the law which made it a crime to insult the President of Rwanda and also proposed a jail term, also refused upturning the law which criminalises adultery.
