Interpol to Fight for Iryn Namubiru’s Release from Japan
The International Police in Uganda has taken on a case involving the arrest of singer Iryn Namubiru in Japan.
The Director of Interpol in Uganda Asan Kasingye says police is interested in finding out if her “promoter”, Kim whose real name is Kim Tumwesigye knew about the existence of the drug pellets found concealed in powdered groundnuts in one of Namubiru’s parcels.
It is so far alleged that Promoter Kim could have set her up to carry the drugs for him .
“Following her arrest, Japanese Police got in touch with us saying they were detaining a holder of a French passport who claimed she was Ugandan,” Kasingye told the local media yesterday
“And since Namubiru is a Ugandan national although she holds a French passport, we as Interpol in Uganda got involved, and we are working with France to help our national out of this,” Kasingye added
The Japan Police will detain her for over twenty days before she is charged.
