GERMAIN RUKUKI / BURUNDI

JAILED FOR 32 YEARS FOR DEFENDING HUMAN RIGHTS

Above everything, Germain is a husband and father. But this stalwart of human rights has never seen his youngest son. Instead, the father of three is sitting in a jail cell in Burundi, sentenced to 32 years imprisonment on sham charges after a flawed trial. “For how long must my husband suffer this injustice?” asks his wife, Emelyne.
