Évariste Kalala Kwete

Lawyer and UDPS member


This lawyer and member of the UDPS was abducted in the night of 8 to 9 May 2018 in his family compound in Kinshasa by a group of armed men, some of whom were in civilian clothes while others wore police uniforms.
The men got out of eight police jeeps and broke the windows and padlocks on the front door before bursting into the home. After recognizing James Kalala, they took him to an unknown destination. The unfortunate person is now being held at the ANR, but he is not entitled to family visits and does not have access to a lawyer. Nor is the reason for his arrest known to date.
