Jailed Sheikh Yunus Kamoga denied bail, his case of a violent nature
Convicted Tabliq Leader Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Kamoga has been denied bail by the Court of Appeal.
Kamoga wanted to be temporary released so that he can be able to prosecute his appeal while coming from home.
However in his ruling , Justice Christopher Madrama maintained that like Convicted Sheikh Siraje Kawooya, also Shiekh Kamoga nolonger enjoys the presumption of innocence having been convicted of a capital offence.
The Judge explained that Sheikh Kamoga was also committed to serve the second most severe punishment to death, which raises his chances of absconding if released.
Kamoga had based on old age and his ill health over hypertension, ulcers and obesity as a ground to be given bail, but the Judge did not consider them because he didn’t bring proof that his health couldn’t be handled in Luzira prison.
He then ordered the Registrar Court of Appeal to expeditiously fix Kamoga’s appeal for hearing, and sent him back to Luzira Prison.
