Nakawa Court Chief Magistrate James Ereemye Mawanda has dismissed an application by state to move Kizza Besigye’s trial to Luzira over ‘security reasons’.
The director of public prosecutions Mike Chibita asked that Besigye be tried from Luzira.
Besigye later wrote to Chief Justice Bart Katureebe demanding fairness and justice.
Court ruled Wednesday that Besigye’s case will continue to be heard at Nakawa court instead of Luzira.
The magistrate said he was not convinced by the claim that trying Besigye at Nakawa would cause a security threat.
Uganda prisons produced opposition leader in court to face treason charges.
Besigye arrived at Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court in a Luzira prisons bus at 9am.
Besigye was supposed to appear in the same court on June 1 but was never produced for security reasons.
The magistrate sent back the retired colonel back to Luzira prison until 29th June when he will be reappear in court.
