Three Victims of the 2018 Arua Incident, file a suit against Government seeking for damages and treatment abroad
Three Arua treason suspects; Night Asara Eyoru, Shaban Atiku and Jane Abola have dragged the Attorney General to the High court in Kampala, seeking compensation for the permanent injuries they say were inflicted to them by the Arua District Police Commandant Julius Musinguzi and the Army.
Through Ladislous Rwakafuuzi the suspects argue that on 13th/August/2018, while at Royal Hotel in Arua, at about 7pm Millitary men and police under the command of Musinguzi raided their hotel rooms, beat and kicked them asking for Kyandondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
That the police later dragged them out of the hotel and dumped them in Arua Police Cells from where they were sprayed with an acidic solution which has since impaired their seeing and hearing senses.
The suspects are also nursing broken backs, limps and get constant abdominal pains to which they seek government facilitated treatment abroad as Doctors here cannot manage their condition, given their detoriating health 7 months after the incident.
They also want Court to declare that it is a violation of their liberty guaranteed in the Constitution for the State to sanction Treason charges against them whose particulars and evidence are wanting.
They further want court to relieve DPC Julius Musinguzi of his duties and declare him as unfit to be a public servant.
The Three plaintiffs are again appearing alongside 35 others including Mps, Robert Kyagulanyi , Kassiano Wadiri, Francis Zzake for mention of their treason case before the Arua Chief Magistrates court.
The charges stem from acts of stoning the presidential motorcade during a political rally to fill the vacancy of Arua Municipality MP following the Murder of NRM’s Ibrahim Abiriga.
