BESIGYE DEFIANCE CASE HEARING FLOPS

BESIGYE DEFIANCE CASE HEARING FLOPS

By Robert Ssegawa& Gloria Nakiyimba

FDC former Presidential candidate retired Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye has not been produced  in court for  a second  time for hearing of a petition seeking to ban  opposition defiance campaign.

The hearing of the case flopped as no reason was given for failure to produce Kiiza Besigye in Court from Luzira prison where he has been on remand for more than two weeks now.

A panel of five justices of the Court of Appeal led by Deputy Chief justice Steven Kavuma was supposed to hear and determined the petition.

Other members on the panel are Justices Richard Butera, Cheborion Barishaki, Elizabeth Musoke, and Catherine Bamugemereirwe.

All five judges including Justice Kavuma did not turn up in the court room and instead met lawyer Rwakafuzi  on camera in his chambers.

His lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuzi informed the media that the hearing had been adjourned to the 23rd of June this year.

In this petition the attorney general is seeking court to permanently ban FDC defiance campaign activities.

Security was at high alert at the constitutional court a head of hearing of a petition filed by the attorney general against FDC and Dr Besigye defiance campaign activities yesterday afternoon.

All roads leading to the court were blocked by securing personnel.
