KIGALI - The Prosecution has freed bank accounts and other accounts of factories belonging to detained businessman Assinapol Rwigara (right).

In an August 1 letter, the Prosecutor General Martin Ngoga instructed four local commercial banks to freeze all accounts owned by the wanted businessman.

“We ask you to freeze all bank accounts belonging to Assinapol Rwigara and all other accounts of companies over which he controls such as Premier Tobacco, Rwigara Assinapol M & BICO, Magasin Premier Star and others,” the letter, reference number 01125/D11/A/PGR/CAB, read in part.

Rwigara’s premises which had also been cordoned have equally been reopened and business there is back to normal.

The Deputy Prosecutor General, Alphonse Hitiyaremye confirmed the developments “All his bank accounts were opened on the day when Rwigara surfaced,” Hitiyaremye said Diane Nshimiyimana, Rwigara’s daughter, confirmed that all her father’s bank accounts are now open.

Rwigara handed himself to Ngoga on Friday after 30 days on the run following the death of three people at his construction site. Meanwhile the businessman was yesterday interrogated by Nyarugenge prosecutor Dallecan Rukaka for about five years. He was later returned to Kicukiro Police Station without speaking to the waiting journalists.

“Yes we have interrogated him but I cannot go into details. For further details, contact the prosecution spokesman,” Rukaka said.
However, the spokesman, John Bosco Mutangana, said he was out of office and hadn’t been yet briefed on the issue.

Rubibi said that his office has a right to keep him in detention for seven days starting yesterday.

The interrogation that took was also attended by Rwigara’s lawyer, John Bosco Kazungu, before the businessman was whisked off in a police car.
