The forgery took place one week after the management of Rwanda Cooperative Agency (RCA) stopped the auctioning of the butchery over suspected fraudulent acts committed by former managers of the cooperative.
Arrested men include contractors who built the butchery and the notary of Rubavu Sector who signed alleged forged documents.
The case is connected to the meeting held in 2015 where suspects approved Rwf 435 million KOADU owe to contractors of the butchery and signed the document without consent of the cooperative members.
The spokesperson of Rwanda Investigation Bureau (RIB), Modeste Mbabazi has said that their file was transferred to the prosecution.
“We have transferred their case to the prosecution for quite some time,” he said.
The president of KOADU cooperative, Bertin Musabyimana Nyarubisi has said that it was a good decision to arrest the suspects.
The butchery was to be auctioned on 25th July 2019.
