High court orders gv’nment to produce Kaweesi re-arrested suspects

By Ruth Anderah:

Kampala High court’s Civil Division Head, Justice Stephen Musota has ordered Government to produce four missing Kaweesi suspects who were recently arrested by security operatives, after being granted bail by Nakawa Magistrate court.

This follows an application presented to court yesterday by their relatives through their lawyer Anthony Wameeli.

They argued that Umar Maganda, Ahmed Senfuka, Ibrahim Khisa and Abdul Majidu  Ojegere were arrested 2 weeks ago but  have never been formally charged with any offence before any court of Law.

They also informed court that the 4 men are being held incommunicado with no access to their lawyers, doctors , or relatives and they don’t know where  exactly they are being detained at the moment.

In his response State Attorney Allan Mukama who represented the Attorney General in this case, denied having knowledge of the whereabouts of the 4 men, although he volunteered to help and look for them.

However Justice Musota ruled that the suspects’ relatives had adduced sufficient grounds to warrant grant of their request, and directed that the Attorney General produces the bodies of the said men dead or live on 30/November/2017, for court to inquire into the validity of their detention.

The 4 missing persons are part of a group of  21 people who are accused of murdering former A/IGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
