Video: Besigye asks court to dismiss treason case

Opposition leader Kizza Besigye has asked Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court to dismiss a treason case brought against him before it can even be forwarded to High Court for trial.
Appearing before the Chief Magistrate James Eremye Mawanda on Friday, Besigye accused the Director of Public Prosecutions of abuse of court processes.
“Told court that I admit utterances I am accused of; so, stop inquiries,” Besigye later tweeted.
He added: “If DPP has problems investigating what I did I can repeat it in court. If I win an election I form a cabinet.”
In his address to the court, Besigye said although he was arrested in May, prosecution has not brought any evidence against him, three months later.

“They said I made a demand for independent audit to be conducted before a new president is sworn in. Yes I did. They said I had won an election and sworn in, your worship, yes I did. I don’t know what they are investigating.”
He accused the state of intentionally wasting his time.
But the Principle state Attorney, Lino Anguzo, in defence, said the investigations were taking longer than they expected.
He apologized for the delay but asked court to give state more time to conclude the investigations.
The chief magistrate adjourned the case to September 12, 2016 pending investigations.
