Action aid move to court Following the freezing of their bank accounts

By Ssebuliba Samuel:

Following the long standing freezing of Action Aid bank accounts over alleged money laundering, the organization has dragged standard chartered Banka and financial intelligence authority to court to commercial court.

In October the bank of Uganda froze all action aid bank accounts, but later cleared it following several investigations and handed the matter to financial intelligence authority.

Now according to Jimbo Harriet the organization’s coordinator, despite clearance from bank of Uganda, finance intelligence authority and standard chartered bank have not cleared their accounts which call for legal interpretation.

She said that abnormality has affected 45 districts they assist in Uganda as well as other 65 organization they fund.

Now these are to lodge a formal complaint to Commercial Division of the High Court located this morning.
