Mayor torture: Lawyer denied access to suspect

A lawyer for one of the suspects charged with torturing Kamwenge Mayor, Mr Geoffrey Byamukama, has castigated the army for denying him access to his client and failing to present him in court.

The suspect Abdu Semujju, who is in military detention at Makindye, was expected to appear at Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court last week.

However, defence lawyer Mr Ronald Natuhwera said the army at Makindye barracks denied him permission to meet Semujju.

Semujju is charged alongside four police officers: Patrick Muramira, Fred Tumuhairwe, Habib Roma and Ben Odeke.
