‘Torture’ cops get bail
FOUR Ugandan police officers accused of torturing a mayor have been released on bail while the Uganda Human Rights Commission says that Kampala repeatedly ignores its recommendations against the use of torture.
On Tuesday, the Chief Magistrate’s Court in Kampala released four police officers charged with the torture of Geoffrey Byamukama, the mayor of Byamukama in Western Uganda, in addition to suspending them from duty, fearing they may interfere in the ongoing investigation.
The officers were charged with one count of torture and one of grievous bodily harm. ANA
