Rwandan official freed from France
afrol News, 23 December - Rwandan protocol official, Rose Kabuye will be allowed to go home for Christmas, on condition that she will make a court appearance again around 10 January next year and whenever she is needed to do so.
Ms Kabuye, the diplomat, who was arrested in Frankfurt last month, is accused by the French administration of her alleged involvement in the 1994 shooting down of the then president's plane that led to the Rwanda genocide. She has been allowed to go home under the set bail conditions.
Her arrest sparked a diplomatic feud between Kigali and Germany last month, with president Paul Kagame's government claiming she was just being victimised.
Ms Kabuye, a close aide of president Kagame, has repeatedly claimed innocence to the charges.
Her release follows an application by her lawyers to be allowed out of France while on bail and be available whenever she is needed to appear in court.
Rwandan officials has pledged collaboration in the matter, saying this would also facillitate for clearing her name to the allegations.
