By Sania Babirye
High court Judge Musa Ssekaana has issued an order directing CMI and Attorney General to produce the former police director of crime intelligence Col. Atwooki Ndahura in court on the 2nd of July 2018 without fail.
This follows an application filed on Monday by Col.Ndahura’s wife Sarah Ndahura in the High Court civil division to compel the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI ) and the attorney General (AG) to have him produced in a competent court immediately.
She says that her husband is being held illegally and his life is in danger and his family, doctor and lawyers have no access to him since he is being held incommunicado.
She is also suing the Inspector general of police and the chief of defense forces.
She is now demanding over 200 million shillings from government as compensation for curtailing her husband’s personal liberties.
COL.Ndahura is among the 26 senior police and army officers sofa arrested for engaging in criminal activities during the General Kayihura’s 12year odd term as Inspector General of Police.
