Two security officials from Bank of Uganda who are charged with neglecting their duties have further been remanded to Luzira prison.

Charles Mollo has appeared before City hall court grade one magistrate Beatrice Kainza while Beatrice Kyambade appeared before city hall court grade one magistrate Patrick Talisuna.

They had appeared in hopes of being granted bail today. Though state had no objection to their bail applications, the respective magistrates remanded both of them back to Luzira prison until Monday next week when they will rule on their applications.

The duo were charged and remanded to Luzira prison this week after they were arrested on thursday last week on the orders of the parliamentary committee on commissions, statutory Authorities and state enterprises in relation to the disappearance of some documents of the closed commercial banks.

The committee faulted them on how they failed to explain how the alleged crucial documents in related to the closed and liquidated banks disappeared from Bank of Uganda they were guarding.

The officials have denied the charges and are seeking bail.
