High Court has dismissed an application aiming at pushing security agencies to produce Amama Mbabazi’s missing bodyguard, Christopher Aine.
Aine went missing on December 14, 2015 from his residence in Kyanja, outside the capital Kampala.
His family members maintained that police kidnapped him and was holding him illegally.
Police chief Kale Kayihura, who was at the centre of the controversy, said Aine was wanted by police to answer election related offences committed in Ntungamo district.
An application was even filed in High Court seeking to push Kayihura to produce Aine dead or alive.
The judge Lydia Mugambe Ssali ruled on Wednesday that there was no evidence to pin police to Aine’s disappearance.
Mugambe said they had no evidence that police was holding Aine and cannot order the police to produce him for that matter.
“It’s not certain that the applicant [Aine] is in police custody.”
The judge urged Aine’s family to work with police and find him instead of pointing fingers at each other.
