ISO Rubbishes Police Report on Hotel Murder

The Internal Security Organisation (ISO) has cast doubt on a police report which concluded that Tuomas Juha Petteri, 42, a Finnish national died of drugs at Pearl of Africa Hotel in Kampala in February this year.

ISO said it had already gathered enough evidence regarding Juha’s death and would in the near future tell the truth to the public.

Lt Col James Aliganyira, the officer in charge of Political Affairs at ISO told journalists yesterday that “most of the information which has been spreading regarding the death of this European has been speculation but we have already compiled the truth in the report which we will release in a few days to come.”

He said ISO had obtained the real CCTV footage which was different from what was circulated in the media.

He explained that an earlier footage which was tried on to conclude that Juha died of poison was captured in HD format yet the real video from CCTV cameras tells a different story.

The timing of ISO’s press briefing is suspicious.

It comes just days after the police chief Gen Kale Kayihura was sacked by president Museveni.

Kayihura was involved in a war with ISO over management of high profile criminal cases.

Aliganyira said one of the ISO staff identified as Apollo Kyabajje was in detention alongside two other ladies being investigated over the alleged murder.
