Police brutality case postponed



The ruling on whether the police officers accused of beating up supporters of Dr Kiiza Besigye have a case to answer has been postponed to August 25th.

Mr Herman Owomugisha, one of three senior officers trying their colleagues told Daily Monitor that the case had been adjourned without giving reason.

“There is no court sitting today. The next proceeding will be communicated,” Mr Owomugisha said.

Ms Catherine Kushemerirwe, the state prosecutor, told this newspaper on telephone that the case had been adjourned to August 25, because one of the judges was absent.
“True the case was adjourned to August 25th because one of the adjudicators was absent. The trial will resume at 10am,” Ms Kushemerirwe said.

A total of nine police officers and a crime preventer are accused of unnecessary exercise of authority, neglect of duty and discrediting the police image when they beat up civilians on July 12 and 13 at Kalerwe Market and Namasole Road on Entebbe Road respectively.
