The two were from Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court where jailed FDC former presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye who is incarcerated for treason in Luzira prison was expected to re-appear for the second time in two weeks ever since he was charged afresh
Principal State Attorney Lino Anguzu told court presided over by Chief Magistrate James Ereemye that Besigye could not be brought to court due to security fears.
Today’s date was set by the presiding Chief Magistrate Ereemye on May 18 when Dr Besigye made his maiden Nakawa Court appearance.
