Hello friends,

I'm writing to you beacuse of a very serious matter concerning two citizens of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, who have been sentenced to death by a court in Kinshasa without being guaranteed habeas corpus, in brief, a fair trial. I am enclosing below the information I have on this case in the hope that someone might suggest any immediate action that can be taken, including contacts to anyone who may be able to help.

Thank you for reading:

"Please help me to find legal help for Serge Muhima and Jules Mulimbi, who have recently been sentenced to death by a tribunal in Kinshasa under uncler circumstances. These two individuals have not been guaranteed habeas corpus rights and have been sentenced to capital punishment.
Serge Muhima and Jules Mulimbi have witnessed the killing of Serge Maheshe, a journalist working for the United Nations in the DRC, by two men dressed in military uniforms. Following this incident, they were placed under arrest for investigations and, two weeks later, sentenced to death for murder along with the two soldiers. They claim innocence and no evidence was presented to support the accusation against them. They have been denied the possibility to appeal".

I am attempting to gather more information on this case. In the meanwhile, I would greatly appreciate to hear any legal opinions or suggested action to take.

Thank you all very much for your time and help!
