A week ago, the Director of Public Prosecutions dropped charges against Australia based Uganda cardiologist Aggrey Kiyingi for allegedly ordering the murder of Muslims in the country.
Police failed to adduce evidence that would have him tried for treason after being accused of funding rebel groups including People’s Redemption Army and Allied Democratic Front [ADF].
In the same light, police has failed to secure evidence against the former leader of ADF Jamil Mukulu.
Jamil was arrested, extradited from Tanzania in 2015 and later detained at Nalufenya Police station in Jinja.
He was produced at the Jinja Magistrate Court in August last year on murder charges.
Police then asked for time to interrogate him and adduce evidence that would pin Jamil on terrorism and involvement in rebel activities.
Some of the activities include; the 1990 Kampala bombings, the Kichwamba massacre and the murder of Muslim clerics in central and eastern regions.
However, after eight months of interrogation, police has nothing to show.
The judicial rules of criminal procedure provide that suspects charged with capital offenses be remanded to prison until the case is committed to the High Court.
The rules also provide that any suspect not granted bail by the judiciary shall be remanded to a prison within the jurisdiction of the court.
