The two suspects of Eritrean origin that included Mihret Berhane Tesfargiorgish a 69-year-old female and her 35-year-old son called Tedros Mebrahtu Sereke had been arrested on 4/07/2014 while visiting a beauty centre at the Forest Mall shopping centre in Kampala by the Police Counter-Terrorism Unit.


The public had raised suspicions over the two to the Police due to the facial features of the female suspect that appeared masculine while clearing her hand designs to enable the lifting of fingerprints to help support their Visa applications at the Canadian Consulate in Uganda.

The suspects were subjected to thorough medical checks that proved both their sex and their profiles verified for proof of origin, nationality, occupation, immigration, and passport details, contacts and purpose of stay in Uganda.

The Police in due course established that the suspects truly had appointments with the Canadian Consulate for residential Visas and possessed genuine travel documents.

They were de-linked from any immediate threats to the public subsequently released on Police bond upon cooperating with the police.

They will continue reporting daily to the Police as their stay in Uganda is being monitored.
