Torture of Kaweesi murder suspects is crime against humanity, says Kadaga.
Speaker of Parliament,Rebecca Kadaga says the torture of many people suspected to have gunned down the late Assistant Inspector general of Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi in April meets the threshold of crimes against humanity.
So does the abduction of twelve children the Uganda Police Force picked from their parents’ home.
She says those behind the torture should have long be arraigned before open courts instead of hiding them before the Uganda Police Force’s Professional Standards Unit (PSU).
State minister for Internal Affairs Obiga Mania Kania says those who tortured the Kaweesi murder suspects have appeared before Uganda Police Professional Standards Unit (P.S.U). He said the ministry would provide, at a later date, Parliament with a statement.
Though Kaweesi was gunned down by two gunmen, Uganda Police have arrested scores.
Many have since appeared before court with fresh marks of torture on their bodies.
The Government Chip Whip, Ruth Nankabirwa, says the government does not condone torture.
