Four out of 8 freed Kaweesi murder suspects re-arrested inside court premises.
Six out of Eight Kaweesi murder suspects who were committed in October/2017 to the International Crimes Division to face trial on charges of terrorism, murder, aggravated robbery and aiding and abetting terrorism, have been released to go home on bail by Justice Lydia Mugambe.
Justice Mugambe says any further delays in fixing their case for trial might be perceived as Justice denied
International Crimes Division Court Registrar Esther Nansambu formally informed them of how Justice Mugambe signed their release order and are free to go home unless held on other charges.
Those supposed to go home include, Kasujja Shafiik, Bruhan Baryejjusa, Nyanzi Yusuf Siraje, Karyango Jibril, Joshua Magezi Kyambadde and Mugerwa Yusuf; while Higenyi Aramanzan Nurdin and Abdul Rashid Mbaziira are still held on another charge of aggravated child trafficking, of their own children they say they were recruiting into terrorism activities.
The case is pending before Mukono Chief Magistrates court.
Meanwhile Kasujja Shafik, Bruhan Baryejusa and Higenyi Aramanzan Nurdin, are expected to appear before Nabweru magistrate court tomorrow 12th/September for prisons to correct an error that the said court on 26th/August/2019 in granting them bail said they should deposit cash bail, yet suspects who have clocked their mandatory period on remand without trial, are not supposed to pay cash bail.
On 19th/March / this year High court Judge Lydia Mugambe granted them bail, after her fellow Judge Magret Oumo Oguli found that they had been tortured during arrest and detention by security agencies, and that their release on bail is what would assist in their healing process in a serene environment with their families and relatives.
However four suspects Nyanzi Yusuf Siraje, Kalyango Jibril, Mugerwa Yusuf, Joshua Magezi Kyambadde and one of their lawyer James Mubiru have been re-arrested inside court premises after a security white van UAF 257 E that was waiting for them outside, blocked the exit so that Mubiru’s Vehicle which was carrying the freed suspects could not get out.
Its at this point that the angry security personnel took out their guns to break into the Mubiru’s locked vehicle and pulled him together with the out into their waiting van which took them to unknown destination.
