Chinese contractor sentenced to 20 years in prison in Rwanda for abuse and torture
Sometime after the horrific actions of Sun Shujun, the mine manager for the Chinese company Ali Group Holding was tried and convicted for the acts of violence and torture on Rwandans that he is accused of since August 2021. At the time, it was a video massively shared on social networks, which aroused the suspicions of the country’s authorities.
After his arrest, an investigation was opened in this context and four victims were heard by the courts. The investigation revealed that the manager was trying to punish his employees, whom he accused of stealing minerals. In the end, Sun Shujun was sentenced to 20 years in prison by the Karongi court for administering corporal punishment to workers with malicious intent.
