Opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye has been blocked by police from leaving his home to attend court.
Dr Besigye was on Monday expected to appear before Ms Mary Eleanor Khainza, the registrar of the High Court- Criminal Division as one of the conditions of his bail in a case in which he was charged with treason.
“No amount of “pleading” could get sense into heads of all these police officers to respect the law & my rights! I can’t attend court today,” shared on Twitter.
However, his lawyer Ernest Kalibala was seen in the registrar’s office but did not share with the media what had transpired.
Attempts to talk to Ms Khainza also bore no fruits as she was reportedly rushing out of office to attend a requiem mass of a colleague.
This comes at a time when Opposition MPs are soliciting 143 signatures from fellow lawmakers in a bid to recall Parliament from recess to discuss Dr Besigye’s continued house arrest and harassment by the police.
