Gasabo Primary Court has remanded Nsabimana Callixte alias Sankara who was recently arrested on terrorism charges and pleaded guilty to all sixteen counts leveled against him when he appeared before Gasabo Primary Court in Kibagabaga last week

The ruling on release on bail or remand has been read today around 3pm in absentia of the suspect while the prosecution was represented in the court room.The judge started reading 16 crimes of which Sankara pleaded guilty during the previous hearing.


The court said the fact that Sankara pleaded guilty to all charges, his detention with forged travel documents including national identification and passports used to seek support of Rwanda’s security threats architects, co-signing different statements inciting foreign countries hatred against Rwanda with Paul Rusesabagina and statements that the battle shall continue even after his death are among major evidences pinning him on the offenses.


The court said releasing him raises worries that he might escape justice given that he has no identity. 
Among others, the court said Sankara might tamper with evidence or threaten residents affected by attacks his rebel group FLN carried in Nyaruguru district or return to forests to resume his activities.
