John Mary Mugisha, one of the lawyers representing the applicants, told court presided over by Justice Lydia Mugambe Ssali that the last time court was set to convene and hear the case, turned out to be a public holiday. February 16th was declared a public holiday to commemorate the murder of Janan Luwumu, the former Archbishop of Church of Uganda.
In his affidavit, Kabugo claims that since Aines arrest by plain clothed Police Officers on December 14, 2015, he has never been arraigned formally before courts of law and charged as the law demands. He adds that no valid reason has been given for his arrest yet efforts to trace him in all police detention centers have proved futile.
The statement comes a day after Aines lawyer Severino Twinobusingye filed a suit against Police over the illegal detention of his client at an unknown destination since December 2015. Aines family is also demanding for the release of their relative.
