The worries have been expressed by Karasira’s Defence Lawyer, Gatera Gashabana as he appeared before Nyarugenge Intermediate Court on Friday 2nd September 2022.
He said that his client is not ready to stand trial because electronic files could not be accessed and requested adjournment to make enough preparations.
The Prosecution said that the challenges should have been communicated earlier. however, it maintained that they need to be given time for preparations as per legal provisions but in consideration that there should be no further excuses leading to further postponement on agreed date.
After assessing the request of Gashabana, the court rescheduled the trial for 7th October 2022.
Karasira who once served as a lecturer at the University of Rwanda, has been detained for over one year. He denies alleged charges.
Karasira’s trial in substance has been postponed at different times.
