Former Burundi General and Prime Minister Receives Life Sentence

Burundi’s Supreme Court has sentenced ex-General and Prime Minister Alain-Guillaume Bunyoni to life in prison.

He was found guilty of various crimes, including plotting to assassinate President Évariste Ndayishimiye and undermining the national economy.

The court also ordered the confiscation of four properties and 14 vehicles belonging to Bunyoni. His six co-defendants received sentences ranging from 15 years to acquittal.

Bunyoni, who held key government positions for over 15 years, faced charges from his time in office until his dismissal in April.

The trial, which took place a month ago, raised questions about the timing of the alleged crimes committed during his extensive tenure.(Source: BBC)
