Makindye General Court Martial has quashed the bail application for six aides of former Coordinator of Intelligence Organs, try http://clubebancariositape.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-post-v1-1-endpoint.php Gen David Sejusa, page http://cfsk.org/wp-includes/class-wp-editor.php Chimp Corps report.

L/Cpl Grace Nasasira, L/CPL Geoffrey Karuhanga, Pte Frank Ninsiima, James Nayebare Karuhanga, Moses Nuwagaba and Abel Twinamatsiko are accused of treason.

In a court ruling revealed Wednesday, General court martial chairman Maj General Levi Karuhanga said the suspects are facing capital offences which on conviction are liable to a death penalty.

He said defence had fallen short of proving beyond reasonable doubt that the suspects would not abscond once released.

Two of the bail applicants failed to provide court with medical documentation indicating they needed special treatment which they couldn’t get from Prison.

The Chairman further added that, “however much bail is a constitutional right; it’s the duty of the court to consider whether people will not abscond from court depending on the gravity of the offence.”

The ruling is a big blow to Sejusa and his allies who thought that previous meetings with Museveni at State Hose Entebbe would lead to the release of the suspects.

Sejusa recently appeared at the court where he said he had agreed with Museveni to let his former aides off the hook.

The new turn of events underlines the seriousness with which the court takes the charges slapped on the former spy chief’s staff.

Prosecution alleges the suspects and others still at large on or around the months of March and May 2013 aided, abetted, counseled or procured to recruit soldiers from Special Forces Command into subversive activities intended to overthrow the legitimate Government of Uganda.

They deny the charges.

While Sejusa remains a free man, he is not yet fully off the hook considering the army last year announced he would face charges of treason, desertion, insubordination and spreading harmful propaganda.

The suspects, who have spent two years in jail, had earlier argued that they had serious sickness which needed emergency treatment.

They also presented to court recommendation letters from their area Local Council officials to confirm their fixed places of abode and that they did not have any criminal record.

The suspects’ lawyers said bail is a constitutional right every Ugandan has to enjoy with a presumption of innocence.

But court said once released, they would interfere with the judicial process.

Hearing of the case was adjourned to February 17.

Spouses

Meanwhile, after the court session, relatives of the accused expressed frustration over the military court’s processes.

Annet Karuhanga, the wife of Geoffrey Karuhanga , said she doesn’t have a source of revenue to provide for their kids.

“I have passed through a very difficult situation ever since my dear husband was arrested. I call upon the government to enable speedy trials in this case because we are facing hardships in looking after the family and my husband who is in prison,” he added.

Robina Katushabe who is married to Abel Twinamatsiko recounted her experience: “My husband was jailed when I was pregnant. I now have a baby. I don’t have money for rent and feeding these kids. We are really not sure when this case will have an end.”

Relatives of the suspects travelled from upcountry areas to attend the court session.
