Former Rwandan publisher released from prison

Kigali, Rwanda (PANA) - Former publisher of the weekly Rwanda Focus, Shyaka Kanuma, has been released from prison after serving one year in prison over tax evasion charges, a judicial source confirmed Friday in Kigali.

Kanuma was facing charges related to unpaid taxes amounting to Rwandan francs 65 million (approximately US$ 80,246).

The arrest and incarceration of Shyaka came at the time when many private newspapers in Rwanda are struggling financially because of the lack of advertisement from the public sector, which is not transparent despite a clear policy stating otherwise.
