Police officers accused of kidnap have been released on bail

By Sania Babirye
The General Court Martial at Makindye has released on bail  three [3] out of the seven[7] jailed  police officers battling kidnap charges.
A panel of seven members of  the Court Martial  chaired by Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti has released D/CPL Amon Kwarisima , SPC Faisal Katende and D/ASP James Magada  on grounds that the  junior ranking  officers  can neither interfere with  on-going CMI investigations nor threaten prosecution witnesses.
 The three officers have been released on a non cash bond of ten million shillings each while  their sureties  entered  non  cash bond  of 5 million shillings each.
 The bailed officers must also report to the registrar of the General court Martial twice  every  month and ordered not to  travel out of Kampala without permission from  court.
 Court warned that failure to abide by the above conditions will automatically lead to cancellation of bail.
The seven men are facing charges of kidnap of  three Rwandese nationals and unlawfully conveying  them to their country against their will.
Other suspects Joel Aguma,   Nixon Agasirwe ,  Benon Atwebembeirwe and Abel Tumukunde  have been remanded back to Luzira prison and Makindye military police barracks respectively until the 5th/February/2028  as CMI continues with investigations.
