Lawmaker condemns prosecution of junior POLICE officers

By Alice Lubwama

The shadow minister for internal affairs and human rights also Butambala county MP Mohammad Muwanga Kivumbi condemned prosecution of junior officers instead of their commanders for beating up supporters of Kiiza Besigye.

Kivumbi says that the trial of five police constables and a crime preventer over the beating up of FDC supporters is a mockery of justice because they were working on orders of their commanders who have been spared from taking the stand in the dock at the police tribunal that started work yesterday.

The law maker notes that charging the five officers is a trick by the IGP to fool Ugandans that justice will be served.
