C. Peter Erlinder, a professor at the William Mitchell College of Law and an advocate for human rights, has been arrested and jailed in Rwanda. He was in the country to see a client, Victoire Ingabire, who opposes the current President, Paul Kagame. Ms. Ingabire has been charged with "promoting genocidal ideology." Professor Erlinder now apparently faces the same charges.
