Basajjabalaba sent back to Luzira prison

Basajja-at-court

City Businessman Hassan Basajjabalaba has been remanded to Luzira prison.

This is after the Anti-Corruption Court canceled bail granted earlier and committed him to the high court.

Basajjabalaba is jointly charged with his young brother Muzamir Basajjabalaba with 3 counts including defeating tax laws, forging a judicial document and uttering a false document.

The taxes in question amounting to about sh20bn arose out of the about sh142bn compensation to Basajjabalaba’s  companies under Haba Group Ltd after his tender for management of City markets was cancelled.

 

Anti-Corruption Court chief magistrate Iren Akankwasa made the ruling to cancel Bassajja’s bail application.
