The ruling on the case of Gacinya postponed due to bad internet connection

The primary court of Nyarugunga has ,on Wednesday 3rd of January, postponed the case of Gacinya Denis, the Vice-President of Rayon Sport Association and the Managing Director of MICON due to bad internet connection.

The ruling of the case of Gacinya Denis was for the court to decide whether the defendant should be granted a bail or held on remand while waiting the trial to begin in its ground. Gacinya Denis is accused of deceiving in a contract, a crime condemnable by article 320 of the penal code of the Republic of Rwanda, his contractors “Rusizi District” whereby according to the provisions of the contract entered between MICON and Rusizi District, MICON was responsible for the supply of 830 electricity poles with the whole contract worth Frw 636 million.
In this case where the prosecution accuses MICON, the prosecution states that a total amount of Rwf 495 was paid in advance whereas Gacinya accepts to have been paid only Frw 460. However, according to REG assessment of the value of the work in the contract proved to be Frw 253 million.
As MICON failed to complete the work in the contract the District contracted another Company in the contract which cost Frw 338 million.

The Prosecution has, last week, requested to the court a 30 days detention for Gacinya Denis as he does not present convincing proofs.
The court has postponed the ruling until Thursday 4th January 2018.
Once convicted, Gacinya may be liable for to a term of imprisonment of six (6) months to one (1) year and a fine of two hundred thousand (200,000) to five million (5,000,000) Rwandan francs or one of these penalties as stipulated by the article 320 of the Penal Code.
