Ingrid files torture complaint to rights commission



Forum for Democratic Change Secretary for Mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe has filed a complaint against Uganda police to the Human Rights Commission.

Ingrid was flanked by opposition leader Kizza Besigye who too on Thursday filed a case of continued harassment by security forces.

This came two days after the two were arrested alongside Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago in Kabale where they had gone to attend court.


On Sunday April 10, Turinawe spent a night at Kasangati police station guarding her vehicle from “poison and devices”.

Police, which had impounded her car later, gave her release papers for signing but in the night, goons attacked her home in Kasangati Wakiso district and vandalised the same car.

Ingrid says the only person [police] she would run to for help as a citizen is the first suspect.

She claims police wanted to bug her Toyota Noah and insert radioactive materials.

Ingrid confirmed to us that she has recorded a statement with rights officials concerning the continued harassment and vandalising of her property by security agents.


The damaged car

She seeks to be free from torture by security forces that have arrested and detained her several times as well as being able to protect her property from malicious damage.

The UHRC is constitutionally charged with overseeing and protecting human rights in the country.
