About

Leader of Congolese Solidarity for Democracy and Development (Scode), the former Presidential Majority party, Jean-Claude Muyambi was arrested in Kinshasa on 20 January 2015 on the sidelines of demonstrations against a controversial electoral reform. This former president of the bar association of Lubumbashi in the south of DR Congo was then accused of spoliation: he allegedly sold a building that did not belong to him. He was mistreated while detained in prison and sent to hospital several times for treatment. He was sentenced in an appeal court on 12 April 2017 to five years in prison for breach of trust and US$ 10,000 in damages.
