Burundi: Execution / Fear of further executions. More than 350 people under sentence of death - Executed: Napoléon Manirakiza Sergeant René Rukengamangamizi

, Index number: AFR 16/016/2000

Two soldiers, Napoléon Manirakiza and Sergeant René Rukengamangamizi, were executed on 19 October just hours after they were sentenced to death, in flagrant disregard of their right to appeal. Amnesty International is concerned that other prisoners under sentence of death could now face imminent execution.
