- In the alleged Special Board Resolution and a Memorandum of Understanding both dated June 13 2017 and drafted by Ligomarc Advocates, General Saleh is authorised and accepts to acquire 15 percent shareholding in Ms Lead Tobacco & Commodities (U) Ltd. The tobacco factory business is owned by exiled by Rwandan tycoon, Tribert Rujugiro whom Kigali accuses of funding efforts to destabilize Rwanda.
- One of Ligomarc Advocates partners, Ruth Sebatindira allegedly signed both documents in her supposed capacity as director and shareholder in the company, but In a statement issued on Monday, Ligomarc discredited the authenticity of the documents.
