Theos Badege, the police spokesman, told The EastAfrican that preliminary investigations are being conducted before a case can be opened against her and her family.
The police say Ms Rwigara, 35, is being investigated for alleged use of forged signatures during her presidential bid. She was disqualified from the August 4 election which President Kagame won with a landslide victory.
The family of deceased Kigali tycoon, Assinapol Rwigara, is also being probed for suspected tax evasion.
