LAW AND HUMAN RIGHTS DISSEMINATION PROJECT
“Nemo censetur ignorare lege”: “No one is supposed to ignore the Law” This adage expresses a legal fiction that a person cannot plead ignorance of the law before a judge. This can be caused by difficult access to laws by non-lawyers. In a country like Rwanda where a large number of the population cannot read or write, we have the right to say rather that “no one is supposed to know the law”. Indeed, with the current channels of dissemination of the law and changes that often happen, the population is likely to be unaware. The project to disseminate law and human rights aims to inform the population of their most fundamental rights and the laws in force in Rwanda. A series of training courses is therefore organized for opinion leaders and online resources available to the public.
