Rwanda: Fear for safety/possible prisoner of conscience/detention without charge, Augustin Butorano (also known as Nkuba)
Amnesty International is concerned for the safety of Augustin Butorano, a member of a non-violent political youth group called Itara, who was detained by police on 26 May. He may be a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful expression of his political beliefs. Other members of Itara have reportedly also been detained.
