The fate of the eight accused persons in the murder of former Police Spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi hangs in balance after court adjourned their case to next year.
When the matter came up for hearing today, defense led by counsel Geoffrey Turyamusiima revealed to court presided over by Justice Alice Komuhangi how they aren’t fully served by prosecution so there was no way they could proceed.
Turyamusiima also revealed that one of the five accused who were granted bail, Yusuf Siraje Nyanzi alias Jimmy Ssentamu had been re-arrested by armed men suspected to be security operatives, something the prosecution promised to investigate.
Court has accordingly adjourned the matter to the 13th February 2023.
Last month the eight accused asked court to dismiss the case, claiming that they were tortured during arrest and interrogation by security organs such as the Police and CMI operatives.
Kaweesi was killed in cold blood on March 17, 2017, at Kulambiro in Nakawa division, together with his bodyguard Kenneth Erau and driver Geoffrey Mambewo.
