Court sets date to rule on Aine’s case

The High court has today heard the application of relatives to missing security aide to Amama Mbabazi, Christopher Aine that seeks orders against the Inspector General of Police to produce him in court, and said it will deliver a ruling on 30th March.

Justice Lydia Mugambe heard both the relatives’ lawyers led by John Mary Mugisha and those of the Attorney General the respondent in this case.

Aine Lawyers asked Justice Mugambe to task Gen.Kale Kayihura to produce their client because he was last seen in the hands of their officers and that if he was being looked for in relation to the Ntungamo electoral violence, his name would have been included on the charge sheet of those already facing trial in the Ntungamo court.

However State Attorney Madete invited court to dismiss the case maintaining that Aine’s relatives have not adduced any evidence justifying the grant of their request against the IGP, since Aine’s detention has not been clearly established.

Aine’s relatives led by Kabugo Ezra argue that on 16/Dec/2015 around 6am Aine was picked  from his home in Kyanja by a group of police officers travelling in a patrol vehicle and a white Van, since then he has disappeared and the relatives believe he is in an ungazetted detention.
