Will Announce the Filing of a Petition with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention during Virtual Press Conference on March 30 at 10am ET

CHICAGO - illiNews -- Attorney Peter Choharis and the family of illegally extradited and jailed humanitarian Paul Rusesabagina will hold a virtual press conference on Tuesday, March 30 at 10:00 AM Eastern to discuss the petition filed with the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (UNWGAD) on behalf of Paul Rusesabagina. Mr. Rusesabagina is a prominent humanitarian and political activist who was kidnapped by Rwandan authorities on August 27, 2020, held incommunicado, and has continued to be arbitrarily detained for more than 210 days on false terrorism charges without effective legal assistance or proper medical treatment. The petition was filed by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights and the Choharis Law Group.

In late August, the international human rights icon whose story of saving 1,268 people during the Rwandan Genocide was told in the film Hotel Rwanda, was lured from his home in San Antonio, Texas and flown against his will from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Kigali, Rwanda.
